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.
