DragonCon After Hours

Saturday, August 31, 2013

After a really, really long day of working I headed back to DragonCon in downtown Atlanta for some fun. I had photographed the parade earlier in the day and then had some other assignments to shoot. I wanted to go back since this was my first time getting to be a part of such a large convention. This year marked the 27th year for DragonCon and 57,000 people are estimated to be in attendance. The convention lasts for five days, features 3,500 hours of programming, 405 guests including Billy Dee Williams, William Shatner, Ernie Hudson, Jason David Frank and many more and 1,800 volunteers have made sure that it runs without a hic up.
