The 22nd annual Dillinger Days returns to Hotel Congress in Downtown Tucson to mark the time in 1934 when the Tucson Police Department captured and arrested John Dillinger, who was the most wanted outlaw at the time.
The celebration begins tonight with the sold out Speakeasy fundraiser for the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation. That event will feature live music, a 1930s costume contest, whiskey and beer tastings, cigars, memorabilia from the era, and more.
The family-friendly festivities begin at 9 a.m. tomorrow at Hotel Congress, complete with reenactments of the historic capture. Actors dress in period garb and drive vintage cars to make the scenes realistic.
