CMT DukesFest Attracts More Than 50,000 Fans

CMT DukesFest 2006 attracted more than 50,000 fans each day to the Tennessee State Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday (June 3-4), organizers have announced. Local news media reported even higher crowd estimates for the event that featured a reunion of the surviving members of The Dukes of Hazzard, including John Schneider (Bo Duke) and Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), James Best (Rosco P. Coltrane), Ben Jones (Cooter), Sonny Shroyer (Enos) and Rick Hurst (Cletus). More than 100 replicas of the famous General Lee car were on display at the festival that also included musical performances, stunt-driving demonstrations and autograph sessions. At one point while onstage, Schneider joked, ""There is an orange '69 Dodge Charger ... with its lights on in the parking lot."
