Slide The City Coming to Vancouver

Published May 11, 2015 | Updated Oct 28, 2019

Registration opens May 12th! I don’t know if this is more exciting for kids or adult! Slide The City, the family friendly water event featuring a slip-and-slide over 3 football fields long, has released their North Vancouver date- August 22nd 2015. Mark your calendars!

I don’t get excited too easily, but when a 1,000 foot slip-and-slide comes to the North Van streets I don’t know who will be happier, the adults or the kids? If you haven’t heard, “Slide The City” is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event with live music, food, drinks, water, and the mecca of slip-and-slides: a 1,000 foot long, soapy piece of vinyl. Just in case you’re not grasping just how big 1,000 feet is, well let me tell you, 1,000 feet is longer than THREE football fields! It is padded, plus you’re welcome to bring floaties to help slide through.

Bring water balloons, water guns, and anything that will be able to get people soaking wet. 

Coming to North Vancouver August 22nd, 2015

On August 22nd, get ready to get wet and have fun. So mark your calendars and get your tickets, because registration is opening TOMORROW. The exact location is Victoria Park (Lonsdale Ave and Keith Rd).

To get an idea of what to expect, here’s what happened at their first-ever event (a huge success!):

Salt Lake City, Utah- First Slide The City Event

Last summer was the first Slide The City event in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you check out their site or Facebook page, you’ll see tons of photos and videos.

3,000 tickets were available and all sold out. So make sure you get your ticket quick! Ticket prices were from $15/single slide – $25/ triple slides and $35 for unlimited access. There were also VIP Tickets for $45 which gave an hour of exclusive sliding for VIP pass holders, plus lunch, t-shirt, and hat. All proceeds went towards Ronald McDonald House and the Utah Aids Foundation.

Looks like they had a TON of fun!

I think you should revise the first line and say
"Slide coming to North Vancouver" as Vancouver declined the opportunity to have this event in their community and they don't deserve the free advertising

Am well aware this is an American organization but why should Canadians pay in US funds when held in North Vancouver? Sorry count me out!
