Phyllis is taking care of her grandson Bobby while her son Mike and daughter-in-law Sarah are out of town. Carolyn gets Phyllis involved in the harvest festival to be held in one of the city parks the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The purpose of the festival is to help feed the poor and homeless.
Much like the peach festival held in the summer, there are games and rides and craft displays, as well as food vendors, a Thanksgiving cooking contest, and of course murder.
