The @BudCanada Red Zeppelin will fly in #Toronto

The World's largest goal light has moved from the Superbowl to T.O. to help celebrate Canadian Men's and Women's hockey at the 2014 Sochi Russian winter Olympics. On Thursday, February 13, 2014 the two story, 70 foot long dirigible with over 75,000 LED lights and a special sound system will provide some extra excitement for the winter games.

Flying over historic Fort York from 8 am to 4 pm, the Red Zeppelin debuts when the Canadian Men's team battles Norway. Able to fly up to 500 feet, the lighter than air ship will light up and sound a horn when Canada scores a goal. Something many people in Toronto will be able to see when the ship climbs high in the sky.
"This year, the Red Lights and the Red Zeppelin are synced to all Canadian goals including those on the world stage. This means that while the zeppelin is afloat, every time Canada scores a goal it will light up in tandem with the individual red lights and the horn will sound ringing in the moment of celebration every fan anticipates during the game. Let the Goals Begin Toronto!!!"
Update: the Red Zeppelin took to the skies for a couple hours until the winds became a concern and the flying machine had to come down. The zeppelin did the trick anyways because Canada won its first game of the Olympics with a score of 3-1 against Norway. Photos provided.
