What is that up in the sky flying over Central New York?  It's not a bird or a plane and it's certainly not Superman; but, it does have something to do with a cartoon character.

It's the Met Life Blimp and it's promoting the new Peanuts movie that will be coming out in theaters later this year.

The Blimp is expected to be flying all over the Mohawk Valley this weekend.  It's pivoting around 3 local events: The Baseball Hall of Fame celebration in Cooperstown; Honor America Days in Rome and the Irish Fest at the Herkiner County Fairgrounds in Frankfort.
