Highway Entertainment is the proud sponsor of the Newcastle Pinball Association’s third annual event, Pinfest 2014-Festival of the Silver Ball - a charity festival for pinball collectors and enthusiasts to dust off their machines and meet like-minded individuals.
Pinfest 2014 will bring together collectors and fans from all over NSW and interstate to showcase what pinball culture is really all about. It aims to present gaming culture as it existed before home electronic consoles were even a thing.
But it’s not just fun, it’s also fighting the good fight! It will be raising money for the SIDS and Kids charity which is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood, and to supporting bereaved families.
The festival will feature over 50 machines, including modern, retro and vintage pins, which will be set to free-play for visitors to enjoy. Collectors and enthusiasts will be coming from all over the place (some will be coming from interstate) to show off their machines and answer questions about pinball.
There will also be a Pinball Competition on the Saturday night after the general exhibition; with some of the best competitors in the country battling it out - it is sure to be some great entertainment.
The festival will be held at the Caves Beachside Hotel on Saturday September 27st from 9:30am-1pm and then from 2:30pm-6:30pm, and on Sunday September 28nd from 10am-3pm. Entry is $10 for a single admission and $20 for a family admission.
