Ladies and Gentlemen, on your marks, get ready…

The 2014 Dragon Con Parade is scheduled for Saturday, August 30, 10:00 AM in downtown Atlanta! It’s a celebration of the magic and wonder that is Dragon Con and the public is cordially invited to share in the fun.

To march in our legendary parade you must be a Dragon Con member or one of our official sponsors. Registration to participate has begun and ends on August 1.

Make your plans now and sign up to reserve your place early in the process. The number of participants and vehicles in the 2014 parade will be capped and registration is subject to closure, without a guarantee of advance notice, if the participant and vehicle caps are met before our August 1 deadline.

REGISTER NOW!

If you have any questions about our parade, please email us . If you plan to participate, consider joining our Facebook community or our Yahoo group where you can exchange ideas and get connected to fellow participants as well as finding the latest updates and information about the parade.

UPDATED REGISTRATION INFO - 6/7/14

Want to walk in the Dragon Con 2014 Parade? If so you need to read this: (This info was received from the Dragon Con parade director)

We’ve had an unprecedented response to registering for the parade and are just about to hit our 2014 cap.

We need your help in insuring that everyone who wants to participate has a chance to sign up.

If you are marching in a group that has reserved space (for example the 50st, Prydon Academy, Kenyon’s Minions, the Super Hero Forum, WOW or other Gaming groups, etc.) , you do NOT need to register yourself. Your participation is covered under the spaces reserved by your group.

If you did register yourself (individually) but are marching in a specific (registered) group, please let us know ASAP so we can make appropriate adjustments in the database and free up a spot for one more participant.

If you think you might have registered yourself or your group more than once (possibly thinking your original registration did not go through), please contact us ASAP. We have some entries in the db that look like duplicates.

If you registered a group and have discovered that you over estimated the space you’ll need, please contact us ASAP.

THANK YOU!

    Final warning to all interested in marching in the 2014 Dragon Con Parade. THIS IS THE LAST CALL!

    This is the link to register to walk in the parade: http://tinyurl.com/dcparadereg We anticipate closing parade registration no later than Monday, June 9, 5 PM Eastern. That means registration just might close BEFORE then without any further notification. Once the numbers are hit, we’re closing the books on 2014 parade registration. There will be NO at con parade registration again this year.


    We’re really excited about what you’ll see on the streets of downtown Atlanta on Saturday morning and want to thank everyone who has signed up to be a part of it. :)

    Veronica Atkins just created a Facebook group for Dragon*Con attendees that might need extra help getting around con. You don't have to have a handicap sticker to be in this group or use Dragon*Con Disability Services. If you or a loved one has every had mobility issues or have any type of disability that could hinder your experience at Dragon*Con please join. I have personally been dealing with Dragon*Con Disability Services for the past 4 year and they are wonderful people. Hopefully this group will become a group where we can talk about our experiences with Dragon*Con and help out any newbies.
