Louisiana "Dukes" event plans to serve up the full surviving cast

Any year with a big "Dukes of Hazzard" event like this weekend's Hazzard Homecoming is a good "Dukes" year, we know. And we do have the benefit of the episodes currently being on the air again, on CMT, after all. But throw in the Galax event a few weeks back, plus another blockbuster event with cast members showing up, and it's a really big "Dukes" year.

In fact, the Dukes of Hazzard Family Reunion and Car Show in Livingston Parish, Louisiana, in September has a whole lot of reason to boast. They're not just featuring cast members -- they're offering up the complete surviving cast. BRBTV has nothing but a robust round of applause for show organizers who have the respect to invite all of the cast (as, we might add, John Schneider was gracious enough to do with his Dukesfest in Atlanta a few years back). So here it is, the glorious roundup:
John Schneider (Bo Duke)
Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke)
Tom Wopat (Luke Duke)
Byron Cherry (Coy Duke)
James Best (Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane)
Sonny Shroyer (Deputy Enos Strate)
Don Pedro Colley (Sheriff Ed Little)
Ben Jones (Cooter Davenport)
Rick Hurst (Deputy Cletus Hogg)

And it's a free event? Wow. This truly is Hazzard County. And if that wasn't enough to convince you, one of the show organizers is Jim Hogg.

The event takes place on Saturday, September 29, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Henderson Auctions on Highway190 west of Livingston, Louisiana. Keep an eye on it at this Facebook page.
