**Updated 8/31 – The winners have been chosen!
Third time’s a charm! We’ve received over 2,000 entries for this year’s Adopt-A-Portapotty contest, and the names were as poopy as ever. We’ve selected a large group of semi-finalists, and it’s now up to you, the people, to vote for your 10 favorite portapotty names.
The WBEZ team and Riot Fest will select five picks, to go along with five picks from the poll you see below. Vote for your favorite 10 names, and don’t vote more than once or you’ll be banned from RiotFest.org contests for eternity.
The Adopt-A-Portapotty contest is brought to you by WBEZ’s Curious City Podcast, a weekly show that answers all your questions about this great city we call home. Riot Fest x WBEZ’s Curious City is the perfect partnership because they love dumping poo content on you as much as the Dave Matthews Band tour bus.
Check out some of their top toilet-related stories.
