2018 Carnival Wrap: Raffle Winners and T-Shirt Orders Open

On behalf of all of us at Beacon Hose, thank you for the incredible support at our 2018 carnival. For the third year in a row, we smashed all of our records — and ran out of some food along the way — and that’s all thanks to the wonderful showing by our neighbors and friends.

For those of you who wanted a Beacon Hose carnival T-shirt but found them all sold out, we’re printing ONE MORE ORDER of them. The T-shirt features Beacon Hose’s logo on the front left chest and this year’s carnival theme on the back. The original theme of the carnival was “Where the Party’s At” — that’s what we tell people at other towns’ parades when they ask where Beacon Hose is — but we had to adjust it after May’s tornado. The finished product, designed by our friends at Liberty Screen Print Co., features a menacing tornado trying to ruin Beacon Hose’s party.
