Chompie Returns to Downtown Silver Spring!

sharkThe Giant Inflatable Shark that seems to swim right through the Discovery Headquarters Building in Downtown Silver Spring is BACK!

Nick named “Chompie”, the beloved attraction first appeared in 2006 during Shark Week.  The shark was missing until Chompie Returned in 2010 !

Today he is back for Shark Week 2012, the 25th Aniversary of discovery’s first showing of Shark Week in 1987. Shark week – 25 yrs premires on August 12th at 9pm on the Discovery Channel

I saw Chompie today, he’s a little beat up – but as cool as ever!

The best place to view Chompie is from Silver Spring’s Red Line Metro Platform, looking up Colesville Road.  You would be staring right into his huge open mouth.

This is a great attraction to see in Downtown Silver Spring, whether you view Chompie after dark (he’s lit up) or during the day.  Kids love seeing this.  It is definitely worth the drive or a trip on the Metro, if you don’t live nearby

    Wow that’s awesome! It will definitely make you do a double take when you’re driving down the road.
