Dragon Con, the fantasy and science fiction convention, which meets annually in Atlanta every Labor Day weekend, includes a colorful and varied parade. This photo was taken on Peachtree Street during the 2012 parade.
Due to Atlanta streetcar line construction, Dragon Con will introduce a new route for its swarm-attracting parade, which begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 31.
From a new staging spot on West Peachtree Place near West Peachtree Street, the parade will turn north (left) 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.
