Slide The City Coming To Edmonton

Published Jun 4, 2015 | Updated Oct 28, 2019

I don’t know if this is more exciting for kids or adults… The gigantic slip and slide will be coming to Edmonton streets on Saturday July, 18 2015. Get ready because registration is opening soon!

A 1,000 foot slip-and-slide will be hitting the Edmonton streets this summer! 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 soapy piece of vinyl that is longer than THREE football fields.

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

Coming to Edmonton July 18th, 2015

On July 18th, 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 Grierson Hill NW

Salt Lake City, Utah- First ‘Slide The City’ Event

The first Slide The City event in Salt Lake City, Utah was a huge success last summer! If you check out their site or Facebook page, you’ll see tons of photos and videos. Notice the huge smiles on everyone’s face!

3,000 tickets were available and each one of them 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 BLAST!
