Yellow Ribbon Party
We began as a well-meaning group of Dragon*Con attendees celebrating our military men and women coming home to us. We discovered that we didn’t want to just celebrate our friends and family; we wanted to celebrate those still serving this country, those who can’t come home yet to their loved ones, and those who gave all so that we geeks and fans could gather in freedom. Thus was born the Dragon*Con Yellow Ribbon party! Free, no Dragon*Con badge necessary, we’ll be collecting for the USO of Georgia. Thu 8PM, 601-602 (Marriott)

Featuring appearances by:

  • 8:30: The amazing antics of Thimblerig Circus
