Auburn Ave NE and Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 404-817-6818
Description: There's no spectacle in Atlanta quite like this one, which features hordes of sci-fi and fantasy fans taking over the streets of downtown. People come from all over the country for the convention, which focuses on everything from Star Trek and Star Wars to vampires and zombies. The most dedicated attendees come in elaborate costumes and march in the parade, which boasts everything from Klingons in a Camaro and a battalion of Storm Troopers to shiploads of pirates and more Harry Potters than you can shake a wand at. You'll be talking about the parade and showing people your snapshots for weeks afterward.
