At the end of this week Hood will be choosing a winner for the grand prize: a ride in the iconic Hood Blimp.

#LookUp for a once-in-a-lifetime view
NEW YORK, NY—September 4, 2012 – Van Wagner Airship Group is proud to announce a historic event to take place Thursday, September 6 at 9:00 a.m.
WHAT: A fleet of four blimps led by a Van Wagner banner-towing plane will take center stage in a majestic blimp parade along the Hudson River, traveling from the Verrazano Bridge to the George Washington Bridge.
WHO: The participants include the MetLife Snoopy blimp, the DirecTV Starship blimp, the HP Hood blimp and the Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey blimp.
WHEN: Thursday, September 6, 2012 at 9:00 a.m.
WHY: This is a “blue moon” event, as multiple blimps rarely fly together in the same city at the same time. The view of four blimps, following a special airplane announcing and leading the parade will truly be a magnificent scene against the breathtaking Manhattan skyline. Follow the blimp parade on Twitter using #LookUp.
