LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (NBC33) — Thousands of 'Dukes of Hazzard' fans joined in for a 'Dukes of Hazzard' Family Reunion and Car Show in Livingston Parish.
Fans of Luke, Bo, and Daisy Duke put on their best 'Hazzard county' costumes, and brought their best 'General Lee' look-a-likes. Fans waited in line for over three hours just to get their favorite Duke to take a picture with them.
Fans of the show say they couldn't believe they'd get to see the stars of the show hanging out here in Louisiana.
"I never thought I'd get to meet Bo and Luke Duke," said Bo Duke fan, Michelle Tullier. "I grew up loving them. They were my idols. I wanted to be Daisy Duke when I grew up. I never thought I'd get to meet them. "
"Where I come from you are country and country is cool," said show fan Jason Thiels. "General Lee and the 'Dukes of Hazzard' was the coolest thing on the planet."
"I am a huge fan of the 'Dukes of Hazzard' I grew up watching them," said fan Gina Folks. "I was in the John Schnierder fan club for a long time. So, I am a huge fan."
