Bonnie and Clyde Days Festival

The highlight of this family friendly day is a reenactment of the bank robbery scene filmed in Pilot Point for the 1967 Warren Beatty/Faye Dunaway flick, Bonnie and Clyde. The Pilot Point area, north of Denton, was a known hang-out of the real-life Depression-era outlaw couple and the Barrow Gang. The movie scene was shot at the historic bank building on the town square. Reenactments at noon and 3 p.m.
