The pandemic won’t stop Beacon Hose from celebrating Christmas safely with our neighbors this year!
We’ve had a great Christmas tree sale and an outpouring of support for our first Operation Believe mission, so now it’s time to welcome Santa Claus to Beacon Falls for two more holiday events!

UPDATE: We are sold out for this year. Thank you all for the support — Merry Christmas!
We know many of you are looking forward to Christmas more than ever this year … so we figured we’d let everyone know that we will once again be hosting our annual Christmas tree sale at Beacon Hose!
The sale will start Black Friday and continue each Saturday and Sunday leading up to Christmas until we sell out. We’ll be there from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily. Our crew is happy to trim your tree to your liking, and we also offer free delivery to Beacon Falls residents.
Trees will cost $55 each this year, and we will also have wreaths available (more info to come). Due to the pandemic, all those coming down to pick a tree must wear face masks and exercise social distancing (our crew will do the same). Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted.
We’re also hoping to come up with some sort of idea to safely celebrate the holiday season with our community — more details to come over the next week or two.
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.!

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.
