Kicking off the start of the official haunt season, NETHERWORLD Haunted House will once again bring its terrifying monsters, elaborate costumes, and an over-the-top parade float to the annual Dragon Con. Known as the largest multimedia pop culture convention in the world, Dragon Con draws thousands of fans of comic books, sci-fi, cosplay and gaming to Atlanta each year for a five-day event that brings their favorite characters and fantasy worlds to life. This year’s Dragon Con will take place from Thursday, Sept. 1 through Monday, Sept. 5, spanning through Labor Day weekend.
NETHERWORLD has played a significant role in Dragon Con every year since its creation in 1997, including acting as a sponsor for the official Dragon Con Parade broadcast on WUPA-TV, Atlanta’s CW-69. Taking place this Saturday, Sept. 3 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., this will be the first time the parade is operating without Covid restrictions since 2019, and the excitement is high among fans and regular spectators.
In addition to sponsoring the televised broadcast of the parade, NETHERWORLD is also bringing the element of horror. Fans can expect multiple vehicles, including an elaborate float, and over 50 NETHERWORLD characters fans love to fear! The Dragon Con parade will also mark the public debut of many terrifying creatures from its upcoming 2022 haunts, PARASITIC and THE UNDYING HORROR.
Additionally, the highly acclaimed haunted attraction is proud to once again sponsor Dragon Con’s horror track, the convention’s home for tales of terror and dark fantasy with a nightmarish lineup of panels, topics and guests. NETHERWORLD will have a booth set up in the Atlanta Marriott Marquis for the entire weekend where patrons will have the opportunity to talk to NETHERWORLD team members about the latest haunts and take photos with a few famed monsters.
Following Dragon Con, true horror lovers can look forward to NETHERWORLD’s official opening weekend on Friday, Sept. 23, and Saturday, Sept. 24. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at FearWorld.com.
