Military vehicles will roll into "Dukes" event -- for a good cause!

Have you made your pledge yet for this year's Hair Dare Dukes Days? See last Friday's post of the BRBTV News Blog for links to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society on behalf of the hair-daring feats of Paul Harrington and his daughter, Sarah, who's cutting 10 inches of her hair off to give to Wigs for Kids! Sarah's goal is $2,500 to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, and she's raised $1,200 so far!

A display of seven real military vehicles of the Canadian armed forces is the latest feature being added to the weekend event, which happens August 10-12 in Ruthven, Ontario, Canada. Coy and Vance Duke (Byron Cherry and Christopher Mayer) will be there, along with Sheriff Little, Mr. Don Pedro Colley, entertainer Paul Casey, and BRB herself signing copies of "Them Dukes! Them Dukes!" It's not just a great "Dukes of Hazzard" event -- it's a great "Dukes of Hazzard" event for a great cause, fighting cancer! Admission is a nice, low three bucks.

Bring an extra memory card for your camera, because the photo ops are going to be robust, to say the least! Take this little beauty below, for instance ... You guessed it, that's the ride of the aforementioned Sheriff Little, the Chickasaw County Sheriff's car from "The Dukes." It's just one of the many fun cars (along with tons and tons of General Lees!) you'll see at the show.
