Thursday afternoon, the Carnival Blimp made a stop at Sulphur Springs Airport. The 138-foot blimp, painted to look like a Carnival Cruise ship sailing through the sky, is on a promotional tour through the South. The crew quickly unpacked it from it’s trailer and inflated it.
This is the second appearance this year of a lighter than air vehicle at KSLR. A visit in January from another AirSign ship made for some interesting conversation. It was moored at KSLR for almost a week and was striking when illuminated at night.
Anyone who snaps a pic of the blimp and posts it on social media with the hashtag #ChooseFun will be eligible to win a cruise for two. Carnival will also make a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital for every hashtagged photo.
The blimp will probably not stick around long. It is slated to visit Dallas on 9/1/2018. It will loop trough Texas and head east later in the month. Now is your chance to snap a photo, tag it, and be entered to win a Carnival Cruise.
