Discovery’s ‘Shark Week’ blimp flew over Lower Shore Sunday



The Shark Week blimp traveled the Delmarva Peninsula on the Fourth of July. 

Taking advantage of the height of the tourist season, the Discovery Channel took a new route this year in promoting its weeklong favorite, the shark. 

But who doesn’t love to tease their neighbor in the water with a “dun dun” sound. (Yes, we know sharks generally don’t eat people.)

The blimp was spotted in Chincoteague, Ocean City and Lewes, with a planned voyage to Rehoboth Beach, and came to a rest overnight at the Salisbury airport. 

On Monday, the blimp is scheduled to make its way to Annapolis and Baltimore.

The Discovery Channel’s Shark Week programming begins July 11. Meanwhile, National Geographic’s SharkFest swims onto screens Monday, July 5.
