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.
