BHC Christmas Tree Sale to Begin Black Friday

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.

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

Update: Thanks for your support!

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.
