Dragon*Con 2010: The parade, part 1!

As part of Dragon*Con tradition, the convention held its annual parade through Downtown Atlanta on Sep. 4.

The parade trekked, dragged, crawled, galloped and (mock) fought their way down Peachtree Street before thousands of spectators. Children and adults oohed and ahhed at the sights and cheered on their favorite characters.

Many parade participants interacted with the crowd–at one point, a Jedi warrior match erupted along the sidelines (pictured).

Dragon*Con also made the attempt to break a number of world records this year. Last year, the convention took the Guiness Book of Records for the largest number of people dancing to “Thriller”; this year, the ‘Con won(still pending confirmation at this time) the largest gathering of Star Trek costumes.

D*C went beyond the previous record of 543 with 571 ST costumes

Attempts for the largest crowd of superheroes and steampunk costumes were also made. The previous record for superheroes is 1246.
