Beacon Hose’s Annual Christmas Tree Sale Spans Four Weekends

Update: Our stock of trees is 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 the weekend after Thanksgiving (Nov. 28-29) and continue every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas (or until we sell out of trees, which we did on our fifth day of sales last year). We’ll be at the firehouse each day of the sale from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The fresh-cut trees cost $45 each, and free delivery is available to all Beacon Falls residents. 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.
