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.
As always, we appreciate the support of our community — we look forward to a long-overdue celebration with everyone in the (hopefully) near future! Please continue to be safe and healthy during this time.
