There is no admission fee or tickets required for the public. The event opens at 4 p.m. and closes at 10 p.m.

BHC Christmas: Tree Sale, Parade, Bonfire, Santa Drive-Thru, Popcorn Ball Sunday, and Operation Believe

Update: Thanks for your support! Happy holidays!

Beacon Hose’s favorite season is chock full of events in 2021 after we missed out on a lot of our usual events last year. Here’s what’s on tap!

CHRISTMAS TREE SALE

Our longtime tradition of the Christmas tree sale will return to our parking lot on weekends after Thanksgiving. We’ll open up Black Friday, and then we’ll be here Saturdays and Sundays thereafter until we’re sold out. We are open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. during the sale.

We’ve been hit with the same supply issues as almost every industry out there, so this year’s trees cost $65. As always, we offer custom tree trimming and free delivery to Beacon Falls residents. We also have wreaths (12-inch wreaths for $20, 20-inch wreaths for $30) and cemetery boxes ($15) — cash, checks, and cards are accepted.
