So get your gear ready before bed tonight and have some sweet snowman dreams for a major community event that has inspired a new contest and tasty prize here at 365Barrington.com.
St. Matthew Church has a huge snowy field ready and waiting for Frostys of all shapes and sizes to to pop up tomorrow. So the timing is perfect for our first ever 365 Barrington Snowman Photo Contest. Whether you build a snowman at St. Matthew’s or find one chillin’ in your own yard or neighborhood, snap and submit a photo and you could win a delicious prize from one of the sweetest spots in Barrington!
So here’s the scoop: Bring extra hats and mittens to the West Field at St. Matthew Church, 720 Dundee Avenue, in Barrington tomorrow and join the fun as the community comes together to build an army of Frosties from 10 a.m. until noon. Snap a photo of your snowman to submit in our contest and you’re eligible to win. The hats and mittens donned by the St. Matthew’s snowmen tomorrow will be donated to a local shelter, by the way, so it’s also a super cause.
