The Funky Blimp


If you’re in the Hollywood/Los Feliz/Silverlake/Echo Park/Atwater Village area today, you might notice this blimp flying around.

Called the Ameriquest Soaring Dreams Airship, it’s a project of Portraits of Hope, a non-profit children’s group.

You can also read about it here. I saw an article about it last week and was hoping to catch a glimpse of it today. It’s definitely more fun than that Goodyear blimp (which I still enjoy seeing). Sorry, my photos of it suck, there are nice vivid ones on their websites.

UPDATE: ooh – hexod.us has a better photo.

  1. I got to help paint panels of the blimp as part of the Soaring Dreams program. (I volunteer as a Big Sister.) Today was the blimp’s official launch at Dodger Stadium and the kids were SO excited to see what they did finally assembled and in the sky!

  2. Hi I paint some of the blimp pannels with the 5th 6th 7th and 8th grade at my school Project HOPE in Orange California
