Marta: YES! See musters above. North Avenue Marta station is the goal.
This epic parade is one of two events in our season where we do NOT standout for our costume but for our music. That’s right, other than the bagpipers, we are the only band at Dragon Con. If you’ve never heard of Dragon Con or you’ve never been, this is the way to try it out!! We’ll take you in with us, you’ll be protected in our numbers, walk down the street without bumping into everyone and straight into the Marriott for a standstill. Non-sax players (and specially drummers) usually head to the Sheraton (in the convention perimeter) to cool down. If you play a sax, you’ll likely go blitzing the heck out of the Convention for an hour (we even played for the blood drive folks!). Saxes water down near where they finished! Oooh! Don’t forget to look up at the parking deck roofs that thousands of people prefer for parade watching.
