    I am just wondering about the dragon con in Atlanta in September. What exactly is it and what is the age range for this? How much are the tickets and when can you purchase them? What is included in the purchase of a ticket/admission?

    • Brant Guillory says:

      Not sure about DragonCon’s details other than what’s on the page, but there are usually kids as young as 5-6 at most major cons, and many of them are in costume. It’s a huge convention full of gaming, literature, media, and more. You can order / purchase online, and the admission usually gets you into the exhibit hall and all the non-premium events. Most big conventions also have some limited attendance events, like speakers’ panels or games with limited seats, that you have to pay extra for.
