Home Newsroom 98. Snowman Building Day & Contest for Candy Prize

They had to cancel the event due to a lack of snow last year, but thanks to our well-timed snowfall today, the St. Matthew Church Barrington Family Snowman Building Day IS ON for tomorrow and we’re all invited!!! 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.  And kudos to St. Matthew Church for coming up with such a cool community event.  You’ll find more info about St. Matthew Lutheran Church on their website at StMatthewBarrington.com.

If you can’t make the community snowman party tomorrow, but your kids build their own snow creatures in your yard or neighborhood in the next few days, snap a photo to enter in our contest and YOU are also eligible to win the grand prize for yourself or your family.

The prize is a “Candy Bouquet” filled with a great selection of the most popular items available at the Sweet Spot Candy Shop in Barrington. They’re throwing in a gift certificate, too, so you can select some of your own personal favorites.  The Sweet Spot carries the best assortment of candy I’ve ever seen. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, this is your cure.  You can read more in our post called Find the Sweet Spot by clicking HERE and you’ll get a great taste of their sweetest treats if your submit the winning snowman photo in our contest which starts tomorrow.

It’s easy to enter and win. Here’s how. Just upload your photo in the form below over the weekend or on Monday or Tuesday of next week. We’ll open the contest up for a vote on Wednesday and announce the winner on Friday, one week from today. It’s as simple as that! I have a feeling there’ll be extra votes for originality so I can’t wait to see your creations. Good luck!
