Special event: Dragon*Con 

Fri., Aug. 29

Whether you enjoy the parade, the concerts, the games or just like to people-watch, DRAGON*CON is definitely a summer highlight, with its eccentric crowds decked out in elaborate costumes mimicking characters from film, TV, comic books and cartoons. If the real-life Stormtroopers aren't a cool enough Kodak moment, the lineup of celebrity guests, from Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, to "Heroes'" Hayden Panettiere – not to mention the stellar cast of big-name comic book artists – should have you standing in line at the crack of dawn, light saber in hand. The festivities begin Fri., AUG. 29, and continue through the weekend. Through Sept. 1. $25-$90. Various downtown locations. 770-909-0115. www.dragoncon.org.
