The Macon Telegraph reports that this weekend’s reunion of Dukes of Hazzard cast members is becoming the “countrified Woodstock.”
Organizer Chris Jennings said when he first conceived the “Dukes of Hazzard” Georgia Reunion, Classic Car Show and Music Festival, he was hoping for 10,000 people. He said he now believes more than 60,000 will show up for the event that runs Friday through Sunday. He said tickets have been sold in all 50 states and nine countries.
The reunion will feature seven of the original cast members, including John Schneider (Bo Duke), Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), James Best (Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane), Sonny Shroyer (Deputy Enos Strate), Ben Jones (Cooter Davenport) and Rick Hurst (Deputy Cletus Hogg). The cast members will be available for autographs Saturday.
“It was just a great family-oriented show,” said Jennings, a Macon car dealer. “The only bad thing is all of the cars I’ve wrecked over the years trying to imitate them. I remember racing home to watch it.”
Was Dukes of Hazzard the greatest show of our childhood? We’d tell you, but that’s just a little bit more than the law would allow.
Except for this. This never happened. Scab labor is an ugly thing.
