Pre-Order for BHC’s ‘Boil, Broil, and Bologna’ Drive-Thru Dinner

We know y’all have been craving some great food cooked up by the Beacon Hose chefs since we sadly didn’t get to put on a carnival this year — so it’s time for the Beacon Hose Boil, Broil, and Bologna Drive-Thru Dinner!

The event is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 26, from 4-7:30 p.m.. All dinners must be pre-ordered and pre-paid, and they picked up during a designated time slot at Beacon Hose. Pre-ordering will close on Wednesday, Sept. 23 — there will be no day-of orders available, so don’t wait!

What’s on the menu? Not just the classic lobster dinners available every year at our carnival, but also the return of the Lobster Bomb that we unveiled at the 2019 carnival. We’ll also have steak dinners on the grill, and since we didn’t get to serve up our traditional bologna sandwiches, those are on the menu, too! Drinks, sides, and dessert are also available.

BHC Plans Christmas Mega-Day Dec. 7 with Santa Visits, Parade, and Movie

UPDATE: Thanks for your support!

Beacon Hose’s favorite season is chock full of events in 2019, including a few changes to some of our traditional events along with our annual Christmas tree sale! If you’re looking to join our new Christmas parade or schedule a time for a special visit with Santa at the firehouse, read on!

CHRISTMAS PARADE AND MOVIE

The Beacon Falls tradition of parading around the Hill section of town for Christmas lightings isn’t going anywhere — we’re just spicing it up this year! Instead of an unorganized stroll around the neighborhood ending with a fire, we’re hosting a Christmas parade that will end with a movie and refreshments at Beacon Hose!

The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. at Beacon Falls Town Hall and continue to St. Michael’s Church and the Beacon Falls Congregational Church. Coming along to each stop will be a Christmas parade of decorated firetrucks, trailers, and other vehicles (more on that below, including how to join and where to watch). It’ll all end at Beacon Hose, where Santa will visit, we’ll have refreshments, and we’ll show “Elf” on a jumbo projector screen starting a little after 7 p.m.!

BHC Christmas Tree Sale Tradition Continues

UPDATE: We are sold out. Thanks for your support — Merry Christmas!

The annual tradition that is Beacon Hose helping our neighbors celebrate Christmas is returning once again to the firehouse with the start of our Christmas tree sales!

The sale will begin once again this year with a special Black Friday sale for those looking to get a head start on the Christmas season. We’ll continue Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 30-Dec. 1) and the three weekends after that (Dec. 7-8, Dec. 14-15, Dec. 21-22) until supplies run out. We’ll be at the firehouse each day of the sale from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. (We will close on Nov. 30 at 3 p.m. for our scavenger hunt.)

The fresh-cut trees cost $50 each, and free delivery is available to all Beacon Falls residents. We’ll also custom trim any tree to specifications — they generally run anywhere from six to eight feet tall. We will also be taking over wreath sales from the former Boy Scouts troop — details will be posted soon.

Those who would like to buy a Christmas tree without leaving their own home can also call the firehouse at 203-729-1470 during any of the sale hours.
