Barrington’s newest residents have inspired a new contest here at 365Barrington.com. If you’ve driven through town lately, you’ve surely seen scarecrows hanging around on sidewalks and street corners. It’s all for the Village of Barrington’s annual scarecrow design competition. We’re getting in on the fun by teaming up with local businesses to host our first ever 365 Barrington Spot the Scarecrow contest and it’s easy to win. All you have to do is guess where in Barrington the featured scarecrow is standing and you’ll be in the running to receive great prizes. So here’s our first photo. Have you spotted this scarecrow around town?
If you spend any time passing through downtown Barrington, chances are you’ve seen this guy hanging out on his bale of hay. But be careful! Don’t let the reflection fool you. A local business designed this straw fireman to pay tribute to the heroes of September 11th…
