Phillips prepares for Saturday's Fall Harvest FestivalSubmitted: 09/22/2014

PHILLIPS - Phillips hopes more than the fall colors will draw visitors to the community this weekend.

The city will host the 21st Annual Fall Harvest Festival.

A farmer's market, sidewalk sales, food booths, scarecrow contests, and pumpkin decorating are part of Saturday's celebration.

We asked the Chamber of Commerce what people like best.

"I think the craft fair, and the music, and then the Chamber itself, we sell fresh cranberries," says Linda Heizler from the Chamber.

The event features two live bands this year.

It has a history of bringing people to downtown Phillips, which is good news for small businesses in the area.

"The businesses, they all have sales and promotions all day long, and even on Friday, they do. That really helps the business and the tourists," Heizler says.

The Fall Harvest Festival is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Phillips.
