A Festival of Fun!


The Amesbury Fall Festival was so much fun! Despite the weather, many people came out to celebrate Amesbury with us! Theresa Wing brought her granddaughter to the festivities and won our Scavenger Hunt. Our Taste of Amesbury contest was won by Rick and Kim Sandler, who entered by eating at Phat Cats on Saturday night. The winners walked away with a variety of gift certificates to local businesses, valued at $400-$500 for each prize!

The full Fall Festival schedule of events was made possible through the cooperation of many local businesses and with the support of Premier Sponsor Amesbury Chevrolet and other generous sponsors including Flatbread Company; Healey, Deshaies, Gagliardi & Woelfel, PC; Bartley Machine & Manufacturing Co.; Gould Insurance; Nest; 1st Payroll, Inc.; Wojcicki Development: B&B Alarm; Morrill Electric; and Edward Jones-Todd Schell.

“The improvements have gone from A to Z,” said Patriot Vending & Amusements Owner owner Steve Belmonte. “We’ve gone from older games to newer games, and we’ve upgraded the prize counter and prizes as well.”

The Amesbury Chamber of Commerce celebrated the completion of the project with a ribbon cutting ceremony for staff, friends and family.

The renovation project cost $400,000, took nearly three months to complete, and took into account the family nature of their customers, Belmonte said.

“There are no violent games in here. It’s all family friendly,” Belmonte said. “We want people to come here and really feel they got value for their money.”

The newly renovated game room sits adjacent to Leo’s 24-lane candlepin bowling center. More information including hours of operation and league signups can be found at www.leossuperbowl.com
