Blimps on Parade! Four Promotional Blimps to Parade up the Hudson

High above the Chrysler Building, it's @DTVblimp!

The DirecTV Blimp over Manhattan

Look out over the Hudson during tomorrow’s commute to work and check out four blimps parading along through the sky!

Last summer, blimps flocked to the city for the Great Blimp Race, but things will be more casual this year. Instead of racing through the sky, four blimps will gather at the Verrazano Bridge at 9am and fly north along the Hudson to the George Washington Bridge at 10am.

To follow along, use A Great Big City’s list of Twitter accounts for the blimps.

Check out last year’s blimp race and grab some more details from NYCAviation.
