If you’ve attended the Dragon Con parades in the past, you’re familiar with the route and likely have your favorite people watching spot picked out. This year, things are a little different as the parade route has changed due to the street car construction.
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. A route map can be found on the Dragon Con website.
The parade is tomorrow, August 31st at 10 a.m. It’s expected that over 80,000 people will be in attendance, so try to arrive early. Parking lots fill up quickly, it’s recommended to take Marta instead of driving.
