The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 31, 2013.
Those of you that attend each year, take note: The parade route has changed for 2013. From a new staging spot on West Peachtree Place near West Peachtree Street, the parade will turn north (right) on Spring Street, east (right) on Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard, south (right) on Peachtree Street, east (left) on Andrew Young International Boulevard and north (left) on Peachtree Center Avenue. It will end on Peachtree Center Avenue between John Portman Boulevard and Baker Street, in front of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
FYI–opt for a spot somewhere along the parade route; you’re not going to get a very good view if you stake out a space near the staging area or at the end of the route.
Parking is typical in the city–lots range from about $5-$10, and there’s very limited (if any) street parking. If you have easy access to MARTA, the Peachtree Center station dumps you in the heart of Dragon*Con.
