dragon con paradeWe’ll be heading out to see the Dragon*Con parade again this year–my girls love the pirates, and I’m a fan of the Steampunk outfits. I never fail to be impressed by the level of creativity that participants bring to their costumes.

The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 5, 2015.

The route starts at Peachtree Street NE & Linden, then runs south along Peachtree Street NE, heads east on Andrew Young International Boulevard, and turns north 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.
