Saturday, Oct. 12
Pawnee celebrates the 82nd birthday of the Dick Tracy comic strip and its creator, Pawnee’s Chester Gould. One of the few instances in which a cartoon character gets his own birthday cake, Dick Tracy Day is a day for fans of fedora-noir nostalgia, pop culture and small town treasures. Organized by the Pawnee County Historical Museum and Society, the day includes a flea market, arts and crafts vendors, a student comic art exhibit, live entertainment, a few parades and tours of the museum, 513 Sixth St., in Pawnee. Events will kick-off at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. For more, visit www.pawneechs.org.
