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!
