—Mac Garrison, Columbia, S.C.
Ben Jones, 69, and wife Alma are promoting the first Hazzard Homecoming, scheduled Aug. 13-14 in Sperryville, Va. “We started the event here and called it DukesFest 10 years ago,” he says. “But it outgrew Sperryville and eventually ended up with nearly 100,000 fans in Nashville, Tenn. We want to get back to our roots.” Among stars from the 1979-1985 TV series set to appear are Catherine Bach, James Best, Sonny Shroyer and Rick Hurst, along with dozens of orange General Lees, Dodge Chargers decorated like the show’s iconic, often-airborne automobile.
