Hood launches "Hood Blimp Spotting" social media contest

To celebrate the return of the blimp, Hood has launched the “Hood Blimp Spotting” campaign. Each photo of the Hood Blimp shared via social media channels will give fans a chance to win Hood/Red Sox prize packs including items like a Hood Ice Cream party, Red Sox tickets and a ride in the Hood Blimp. In addition, from now until October, Hood will donate $1 (up to $100,000) from the sales of each container of Hood Red Sox Ice Cream and Novelties, the Official Ice Cream of the Boston Red Sox, to the Red Sox Foundation, the team’s official charity program.

To participate in the “Hood Blimp Spotting” program, spot the Blimp overhead in New England and snap and post a picture to the contest tab on HP Hood’s Facebook page or tweet the photo with the #HoodBlimp hashtag. For each original submission, one lucky winner will be selected each week to receive a Hood/Red Sox prize package. Entries are limited to one per person, per day. As a thank you for posting, entrants will be rewarded with a coupon that can be used towards Hood’s Red Sox Ice Cream and Novelty products.

Site relaunch

After three years of sitting in a box in a warehouse, the Hood Blimp is back in the skies! To commemorate this, Chronicles of the Hood Blimp is rolling out a new and hopefully improved fan site. Stay tuned for information on blimp-related social media contests, a place to post your fan photos, and more.
