Streets and sidewalks around Dragon Con venues were packed with cosplayers, enthusiasts and convention goers Saturday during the 2016 annual Dragon Con parade.

The parade featured characters from comic books, television, video games, movies and more. During and after the parade, as spectators high-fived performers and cosplayers, people posed for pictures with their favorite fantasy heroes. As the parade ended at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, spectators cheered and ran up to characters they recognized.

Cosplayers and convention goers each had their special reasons for attending Dragon Con 2016, and some cosplayers took the time to share their favorite thing about the convention with WABE.
