DragonCon Parade in Atlanta


Wookies, Daleks and scantily-clad comic book characters called Atlanta home this weekend while attending the annual Dragon Con science fiction and fantasy convention. It's the rough equivalent of three consecutive days of Halloween held in high-rise Atlanta hotels.

William Shatner and some stars from the Georgia-filmed TV series The Walking Dead are among 400 actors scheduled to make appearances. Several key scenes from the AMC show were filmed a few blocks from the five hotels hosting Dragon Con. One of the actors set to appear, Michael Rooker, was hand-cuffed to the rooftop of a nearby railroad building during the show's first season.
