Not even COVID-19 can stop the Beacon-Holio Cornhole Tournament from returning for a sixth run at Beacon Hose — and we’ve got beautiful new boards to play on this year!
The tournament is set for Sunday, Oct. 11 at Beacon Hose. Registration and shootaround will begin at 9:30 a.m., and bags will fly at 11 a.m. with big cash prizes on the line. The nuts and bolts of the tournament, including COVID-19 safety precautions, are below; click here for the rules, which will be the same as those used by the American Cornhole League.

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.

UPDATE: The orders have now closed. Thank you for your support!
Many of y’all asked us to keep our tradition of carnival T-shirts going … so here goes! We had a little bit of fun with these, as usual, and any of you Friends fans out there might take a special liking to these.
All orders must be made through our online store, and the store will close at the end of the day on Sept. 11 — we will only open this store one time, so spread the word to anyone you think might be interested! You may choose to have the shirt delivered to your home, or you may choose to pick up at the firehouse during our drive-thru dinner on Sept. 26.
To order, click the link below and enter the store code HP6SY to access the T-shirt order, which is available in youth and adult sizes. Thanks as always for your support!
UPDATE (8/20/2020): Unfortunately, due to the continuing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 carnival has been canceled. We hope to bring back the event in 2021! Thanks for your support. The original post is below.
We regret to announce that the 2020 Beacon Hose Carnival, which was scheduled for June 11-13, is being indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A number of factors went into our decision, but the top consideration was the health and safety of our community and our members. Nobody looks forward to life returning to some sense of normalcy more than us, but based on the latest guidance, our society will not yet be in a position in mid-June during which we can encourage large gatherings.
We hope to be able to reschedule the event for sometime later in the year, but only if conditions permit us to do so safely — a decision that will be made in conjunction with public health and elected officials. Be sure to follow us on social media to keep up with the latest updates.

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.
