2013 DRAGON*CON Annual Parade - Free

Hi Friends!, for those of you interested in Dragon*Con (like myself) The traditional Annual Parade will take place Saturday, August 31st at 10AM. Hundreds of people spend many months and lots of money preparing their costumes and floats just for this event. Some amazing stuff is sure to be seen!!

Dragon*Con is America's largest, multi-media, popular arts fan convention — focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film, held annually over Labor Day Weekend in Atlanta, GA. http://www.dragoncon.org

Happening along a stretch of about half a mile along Peachtree Street, starting from Woodruff Park through the Marriot Grand Marquis Hotel.

This event gets packed so I recommend getting there about half an hour earlier and taking Marta as parking will be hard to find (or very expensive)

The exact meeting location will be announced several days before the event. But I guess the Starbucks on Peachtree could be our tentative meeting place.

This event is Free... So, who wants to go?

    The Starbucks listed originally for the meetup at 265 Peachtree Center Ave. is inside the lobby of the Marriott Marquis, which requires a dragon con pass to enter. This is also the end of the route.

    I am going to change this to the one at 240 Peachtree Street NW next to the America's Mart Bldg 1 entrance and next to Rays in the City. Its essentially one block west down John Portman Blvd from the Marriott Marquis. A picture is of it is posted in the meetup description.

    Hi! So is the Starbuck's location finalized? Do you wear name tags or all have on FOHM buttons or something? I may have on costume items for continuing into the event, or may be carrying it, but it will be a unicorn head. Let's hope the rain holds off...

    Allright, hopefully my first event with y'all! Early for me on a weekend, but, sigh, I guess the cardboard stormtroopers are worth it! I have friends of friends selling design stuff inside (Derekart.com and fontdiner.com) so I will actually be buying a ticket for Saturday, if anyone else is interested in going full monty lmk; supposedly the tix are $50 for the day.

    The station is 'Peachtree Center'. It's one station north of the 'Five Points' station.
