Tickets are on sale for the Cajun Country Jam July 4 Party in the Park at the Livingston Parish Fair Grounds, 13325 Florida Blvd., Livingston.

The event will feature stars from “The Dukes of Hazzard” television show and other TV favorites, including Barbara Eden, of “I Dream of Jeannie”; Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on “Gilligan’s Island”; and Larry Wilcox, who played John on “Chips.”

Country music stars Tracy Lawrence and Mark Chesnutt are set to perform.

The musical lineup also includes Louisiana’s LeRoux, The Gillis Silo, The Chee Weez and a reunion of the popular ’70s and ’80s local country group The River City Good Tyme Band.

A fireworks show, rides, vendors, food booths and approximately 80 replica “General Lee” cars are on tap for the event.

“Not bad for a $20 entry fee advance or $25 at the gate,” producer Scott Innes said. “There’s something for the whole family to enjoy at a price that everyone can afford. And for that, you get to ride all the rides as many times as you like.”

Gates open at 9 a.m. and participants can bring lawn chairs.

Tickets are available at Livingston Parish Carter’s Supermarkets or
