Greenville Resident Wins Ride on Goodyear Blimp

Greenville resident Steve Kimmel was one of 4 lucky people able to win a ride on the Goodyear Blimp in a contest held at Cedar Point on August 17th.

Thousands of park goers participated in a scavenger hunt to find 12 hidden miniature Goodyear Blimps around the park. The 12 winners were then entered into a drawing where 4 were selected for a ride on the blimp as well as a host of other prizes including a meet and greet with NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya. Of course, Steve found a mini blimp and was then selected in the drawing! Steve joined the ranks of past blimp riders including celebrities like Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Linda Ronstadt, B.B. King and many others.

Steve was kind enough to send along the following photos that he took of the ride and of the blimp itself.

Congratulations, Steve, and thanks for sharing with us!
