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 Amesbury Chamber of Commerce celebrated the opening of the new Gordon Rug Company store, with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Amesbury Mayor Ken Gray, and Chamber president Paul Gagliardi.
The new store sells rugs and carpets and offers on-the-spot custom binding and installation services. Owner Jeff Gordon has worked in the carpet industry for 17 years, and works with several local designers and stores throughout Massachusetts, Maine, and New Hampshire. Custom binding is achieved thanks to a large in-store air table that can easily lift a 350-pound carpet.

Mike Leo owner of Leo’s Super Bowl, in partnership with Steve Belmonte, owner of Patriot Vending & Amusements recently celebrated the Grand Opening of the newly expanded Arcade Room.
“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
