'Walkers' invade Atlanta during annual fan convention

- It’s one of the biggest shows on television, and it films right here in Georgia – so it makes sense that tens of thousands of fans would invade Atlanta in hopes of meeting the stars of The Walking Dead.

The annual Walker Stalker Con returned to the Georgia World Congress Center this weekend. This year’s Walker Stalker Con will include more than 50 actors from The Walking Dead and other shows (including American Horror Story and Bates Motel), who are speaking during panel sessions, signing autographs, and taking pictures with fans. 

The convention has also brought back the popular Walking Dead Experience, an immersive experience which places guests right in the middle of the Walking Dead world.

The convention drew more than 50,000 fans last year.

Friday, ahead of the convention, Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent the morning at the Georgia World Congress Center, getting a first look at this year’s Walker Stalker Con.
