Here’s another, more revealing look at the spot where we took that picture.

Giant Pumpkin at Goebberts Farm Market in South Barrington

Great Goebbert! You just haven’t done Halloween in Barrington if you’ve never been to Goebbert’s Farm Market. The mystery photo is of the giant pumpkin which sits atop the silo at Goebbert’s in South Barrington. Did you know this pumpkin has a name? Yep. It’s “Happy Jack” and he’s been sitting up on top of that silo since 1979. He’s made out of fiberglass, weighs one ton and measures 18 feet wide and 15 feet tall. They had to use a crane to get him up there! Goebbert’s is gearing up for their Fall Festival which starts this weekend on Saturday. We’ll be writing more about the fall festival here at 365Barrington.com in the coming days, which brings me to the new prize for our “Guess Where Wednesday” mystery photo contest.

  1. I believe that is one of the dining cars at 111 Grille in the Ice House Mall (formerly Chessies).

    Great game! You guys are so great at marketing and getting in fron of people! I love it!

  2. The train used to be part of Chessie’s, but is now part of 111 Grille in Barrington. I miss Chessie’s, I gotta say. It’s not the same.
