This summer, Slide the City is coming to multiple cities across the country bringing 1,000 feet of slick vinyl to slide down, all while supporting a good cause.
At Slide the City there will be a family-friendly Slip‘N Slide water party event, live music, food, drinks and more, according to the Slide the City website. A portion of the money raised from the event goes to a charity in the area. Junior Courtney Barnett is looking forward to participating in the event in Houston, Texas.
“I am very excited about Slide the City,” Barnett said. “It is for a good cause, and just the concept in general is a really neat idea for raising money.”
Junior Celeste Bolen is also excited about Slide the City.
“I remember being a child playing with my neighbors on a Slip‘N Slide in my back yard,” Bolen said. “I am looking forward to doing the same this summer at Slide the City in my hometown St. Louis, Mo.”
There was some concern about what Slide the City was doing for water conservation in the cities. On the website, Slide the City sent out a statement about this issue.
“Approximately 12,000 -20,000 gallons of water are typically circulated in a day. At the end of the event, the water used in the slide will be treated and then recycled back into the community,” Slide the City said.
Anyone over the age of 5 is welcome to slide, according to the Slide the City website. To register, go to their website where you can choose to do the Single Slider, Triple Slider, or the VIP Slider.
The Single Slider gives you the ability to slide one time during the day. The Triple Slider lets you slide three times during the day. The VIP Slider includes as many slides as you want as well as sliding an hour before everyone else and an hour after everyone else. The prices range from $15 to $50 depending on which option is chosen.
An event is tentatively planned for Little Rock, but the date has not yet been set.
