Dillinger Days at Hotel Congress. The "story" that gets passed around is America's Most Wanted Criminal was captured at the Hotel Congress. That's close, but not quite true. A couple of his henchmen were at the Hotel Congress and not being the normal type of clientele, stood out. It got figured out fairly quickly who they were and that led to the capture of Dillinger by the Tucson Police Department here in Tucson and close to HC but not quite in it :-). He escaped too -- but that's a whole other story! Now we celebrate John Dillinger at the Hotel Congress each January and they do all kinds of things including a huge gathering of automobiles of the era are there, re-enactments, and so much more! You can't help but enjoy this annual event!
