Cover: Dragon*Con Parade in Only Three Weeks!

The annual Dragon*Con Parade is only three weeks away! The Parade will kick off at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday September 1, 2012...and my experience has been that they always start on time.

My friends, family, and others who know me, know that I'm a huge sci-fi enthusiast...HUGE! Oddly enough, I'd never attended a sci-fi convention until a couple of years ago. I'd wanted to, it just never worked out that I got to. That changed Labor Day Weekend 2010. 

Dragon*Con 2010 and the Dragon*Con Parade 2010 were life-changing. epiphanies that changed the way I live or anything like that, but I'd discovered a new level of fun, celebrity spotting (which I love!), and that there are a lot more fellow sci-fi enthusiasts in Atlanta than I ever though.

To give you an idea of the scope of a Dragon*Con Parade, last year's Parade (2011) was comprised of 3,100 participants who overtook a huge strip of Peachtree Street...that's people "in" the Parade, not the thousands of cheering, camera-clicking, video-recording spectators.

The celebrity-spotting I noted a moment ago was not an exaggeration. In addition to the the one and only Stan Lee, here are a few of the HUNDREDS of celebrities that I'm looking forward to seeing:

Whether you attend one or all four days of Dragon*Con on Labor Day Weekend or the Parade (which is free) that Saturday, you're guaranteed to have an experience that's rather unique in Atlanta.
