WGEM TV has a long history with the Dogwood Festival Parade and has broadcast the parade for 46 years.
Viewers will see past WGEM TV personalities like Frank Cariello, Ralph Bristol, Les Sachs, Cory McCloskey, Shan Whiston and the late Bill Wegman and Bob Turek. Each segment is introduced by Natalie Will and Don Dwyer from WGEM News Today.
