DragonCon is the largest multimedia, pop culture convention focusing on science fiction & fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe.  And some big guests for 2015 includes Star Wars’ Peter Mayhew, CW’s Arrow actor Stephen Amell, Battlestar Galactica’s Edward James Olmos, Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols and Games of Thrones stars Kristian Nairn and Julian Glover, and Felicia Day from Geek and Sundry. This is just some of the 400 guests you can see!

The DragonCon annual parade for 2015 will be the biggest ever. The festivities will begin at 10 am at Peachtree Street and Linden Avenue.  From there, the parade will march down Peachtree Street before taking a left on Andrew Young International followed by another left at Peachtree Center Avenue, arriving in front of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel.  Here is a map of the parade route.
