Follow Eldon T Bixby bhs_web
Hello, let me introduce myself. My name isEldon T. Bixby.I am 116 years young and arrived by train on a cold December day. I was named for Tams Bixby, my godfather. Tams handed down a magic candy cane for me to watch over the town and its citizens. I have been to war with my brothers and sisters and have shucked corn by my family’s side. We had so much fun visiting everyone last year. We stayed close to home this past year and helped the Historical Society turn their museum into Santa’s House. Stop by and see Santa every Thursday – Sunday from 4 till 8pm through December 22nd. Our magic is even stronger this year, we will be by Santa’s side every day until we hide December 21st. Remember we multiply each day with magical powers!
I invite each of you to come with us as we travel through downtown Bixby! Each day I will post a clue of where we will be visiting in Bixby. Keep checking and follow us as we travel through Bixby.
