202. Guess Where Wednesday & Last Week’s Winner

2 mins read

Who says we can’t play Guess Where Wednesday on Thursday? A special birthday party made me a day late with our contest this week. But we have a cool new mystery photo which might be a little tricky.  I was standing outdoors in a very public location in the heart of Barrington when I took this picture.  But I zoomed in pretty tight to try and keep you guessing and you can enter yours to win anytime through next Tuesday, July 24th.   The top left edge of this photograph might give you a little hint and you’ll find another clue if you read on.

If you know where we took the photo, just enter your guess in the comments box below. The rules are simple and the prize is pretty cool!

But first, it’s time to reveal last week’s mystery photo and announce our winner and his name is…

Congratulations, Theo, for correctly guessing that the United Way painted horse in the picture is the one standing outside Barrington’s Village Hall.  I will contact you this week about getting you your prize, which is a pair of daily pool passes, courtesy of the Barrington Park DistrictClick HERE to see last week’s guesses and mystery photo.  Here’s a more revealing look at where we spotted that horse.

This horse, painted by Barrington artist, Janet Mamon, is called Sunset and it’s one of many painted horses you’ve seen popping up around Barrington in recent days. They’re all part of the Barrington Area United Way’s Roundup II campaign. The horses will be on display throughout town until they’re auctioned off to support vital community programs during the United Way’s Roundup II Gala Horse Auction this October 13th.  We’re going to be featuring more of Barrington’s painted horses in upcoming Guess Where Wednesday photo contests so be on the lookout!  For a little help, you’ll find a map with details about all of the horses, their sponsors and locations at BAUW.org.

You can also download and print the map just by CLICKING HERE.  But here’s a peek…

    • i submitted my comment last Thurs but it reads “your comment is awaiting moderation”. Not sure what that means. I guessed “cook street side of McGonigal’s Pub”

      • Hi Margaret, thank you for guessing! I dont publish our guesses until the guessing is over so we don’t give the answer away. I should mention that in the “how it works” area. Thank you for participating. I’m happy you are here and hope you guess again soon, Liz
