Dragon Con brings 80,000 people to downtown Atlanta


Dragon Con is back in Atlanta for its 31st year and organizers expect to set an attendance record.

The pop culture convention is expected to bring 82,000 people to downtown Atlanta during the Labor Day weekend.

“It’s amazing. You think it can’t get any bigger, then it does. So many people have a good time. It keeps bringing more people in,” attendee Sam Licktieg said.

Organizer Dan Carroll said the event started with two friends and grew to the tens of thousands of people.

“We give people an experience that’s so wonderful they get out and share it on social media,” he said.
