Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® president, Tommy Price, has the privilege of naming Dean Cain as Marshal of the Firefighters' Parade and Marshal of the Shenandoah Caverns Heroes' Division in the Glo Fiber Grand Feature Parade.
Dean Cain is a multi-faceted, Emmy-winning filmmaker and actor. An All-American football player at Princeton University, he transitioned to film when an injury ended his (NFL) Buffalo Bills career.
He starred as Clark Kent/Superman in “Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” (4 seasons), produced and hosted “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” (4 seasons) and made well over 100 films, including “Out of Time", “The Broken Hearts Club,” "God’s Not Dead,” “Vendetta,” and “Gosnell.” He co-hosted the Today Show and Fox and Friends in between his numerous film and television projects. He is currently hosting Season 9 of “Masters of Illusion” for the CW and Season 3 of The Christmas Caroler Challenge. He is completing his feature-film debut, Little Angels, which he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in and is yet to have a date of release.
A strong believer in human rights, Dean received the prestigious Order of Armenia for producing the anti-Genocide documentary film, Architects of Denial. Dean’s newest documentary, Hate Among Us, just won an Emmy. Hate Among Us shines a light on the current rise of anti-Semitism throughout the United States and Europe.
A single father and a staunch supporter of our military and first responders, Dean is honored to serve as a sworn Sheriff’s Deputy in Frederick County, Virginia, and a Reserve Police Officer in Pocatello, Idaho. Dean also serves on the Board of Directors for the NRA. In Dean’s own words, “real heroes don’t wear capes, they wear uniforms and stethoscopes and badges.”
Dean will be honoring real heroes at the Firefighters' Rodeo, the Coronation of Queen Shenandoah XCV, and leading the Firefighters' Parade on Friday, April 29, at 5:30 p.m. On Saturday, April 30, he will serve as the Marshal of the Shenandoah Caverns Heroes' Division in the Glo Fiber Grand Feature Parade honoring the dedicated essential workers during COVID.
