DragonCon rocks [In reply to] Can't Post

If you have never been to DragonCon, what you should expect is a non-stop costume party for several days. There are a lot of great panels and guests but the main draw at Dragon (for me at least) is the amazing costumes and wandering around the various hotels, people-watching.

In terms of stuff for LOTR fans, there is a Tolkien-themed track of panels and there is usually a fan meetup called An Evening in Bree where all the Middle-earth cosplayers gather and they have games and live music.

Tips: Arrive early if you can so you miss the crowds checking into the hotel (unless you are staying somewhere offsite). Be aware that the con is spread across several hotels so you may have to take skybridges or (*gasp*) go outside in the Atlanta sun to get to a destination. Also, you will learn the phrase "Down to go up" when using the elevators, as one often has to ride them the other direction first due to so many people using them.

It's a really great con. I hope you have a good time! I will be there dressed as Bilbo (among other things).
