Where in DC?

whereindc31

Let’s see how well you all know this city — or how well you notice the details, anyway! It’s another installment of the “Where in DC?” photo contest, in which you name the location of the image above for a chance to win a prize.

The booty this time ’round will be four CertifiKID vouchers for the Boomerang Pirate Ship Family Fun Cruise at the Georgetown Waterfront. You can read all about how fun it is here. Sounds arrrright, huh? 😉

To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me where the shot was snapped. Everyone who answers correctly will be entered into a drawing for the loot. And, yes, you will be able to see each other’s answers, but they may not all be right. Also, it just might make you curious enough to go look up some places and plan to visit.

This contest will run through Sunday, March 26, 2017, then a winner will be drawn and notified shortly thereafter. Good luck!

Where in DC?

whereindc30

Let’s have a little fun, because… why not? The “Where in DC?” photo contest is back for the second week in a row, and I might just make it a weekly thing.

All you have to do is identify the photo above and tell me where it was shot — be as specific as you can — and leave your answer in the comments below. Everyone with the correct answer will be entered into a drawing to win a prize.

And, yes, people will be able to see the answers, but they may not all be right. Plus, as a reader pointed out last time, it just might make you curious enough to go look it up and plan a visit. 🙂

Up for grabs this time is FOUR of these Certifikid vouchers for admission to the National Building Museum.

This contest will run through Friday, so get your guesses in soon! Good luck!

Update: This contest has ended. The correct answer is the ceiling of the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.

Where in DC?

What and where?

What and where?


I thought this dismal day could use a little lift, so I decided to bring back an old, fun feature that I’m not even sure why I stopped running. If you’ve been following KFDC awhile, you might remember the “Where in DC?” contest used to be a fairly regular thing. For those newer to the blog (or in need of a refresher), it’s a chance to put your observational skills to the test — and possibly win something, too!

All you have to do is identify the photo above and tell me where it was shot — be as specific as you can — and leave your answer in the comments below. Everyone with the correct answer will be entered into a drawing to win a prize.

The prize this time is TWO of these Certifikid vouchers for 2 Admissions and Skate Rentals (for adult or child) to Washington Harbour Ice Rink in Georgetown.

This contest will only run until tomorrow at 12pm, so get your guesses in soon!

Good luck!
