photo of "welcome to Hazzard county" sign anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I'm new here! I am arranging a Dukes of Hazzard 40th birthday party for my dear hubbie in 5 weeks time. I am getting a big canvas banner made to look like the "Welcome to Hazzard County" sign but I haven't been able to find an actual image of it - can anyone help me? I want it to be as authentic as possible.

I have confederate bunting, confederate flags and a big flagpole, a dozen strawbales, moonshine punch etc etc all sorted. We are even going to have our bright orange 1970's VW camper van dressed up as The General Lee's big daddy! I am going as Daisy, my hubbie as Bo, our son as Roscoe and our 3tr old daughter as a young Daisy!

Its going to be great fun but I really want to get the sign right.

I plan to sell it, the bunting and flags as a package on ebay or here after the party.

Any help gratefully recieved!!:D

Welcome to HNet FMoore. Here's the sign that appeared at the start of the 'Reunion' TV movie. I'll keep an eye out for ones that appeared in the regular series.

Thanks guys, these are great. They are pretty plain aren't they? I was kinda hoping for the font they use for the Hazzard in the title screens. I love the exit one tho! Right, off to order now!:escape:

Did you really think that Boss Hogg would pay for fancy signs? :)

In case you didn't know, the font used in the opening titles is called 'Hobo'. It's freely available if you Google it. I haven't done any of these in the Signs of Hazzard thread, but I can tell you from experience that pretty much all the signs in Dukes were done by hand, so don't waste time looking for an exact font match.
