If you missed the blimp parade that took place over the city of Boston earlier this week, no worries. We have the complete recap for you! Our team has compiled the best aerial photos of the city, as well as the top tweets from our blimp flight attendees.
Similar to the Blimp Parade that took place in NYC in 2012, spectators took to their phones tweeting, video-tapping, and Instagramming the three airships above. The hashtags used for the event, #BlimpParade and #BlimpsOverBoston, generated over 60 posts on Instagram and a little over 1,000 tweets and re-tweets from spectators sharing in the excitement of this historic event.
We hope you enjoy the bird’s-eye view we captured of the great city of Boston!
