I don’t get excited too easily, but when a 1,000 foot slip-and-slide comes to the Sacramento 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 Sacramento, CA- Saturday, June 13th 2015
Slide The City has officially announced Sacramento and the site says that registration will be opening soon. The date set is: June 13, 2015, according to the site. So mark your calendars! In order to make sure you get tickets at the earliest opportunity, I'd suggest singing up for their newsletter, they'll notify you as soon as registration opens! Here's the link: http://www.slidethecity.com/events/sacramento/
We're still not sure where the exact location of slide will be in the streets of Sacramento, until then, we'll have to let our imaginations run wild!

The event as a whole is totally free to attend for ALL ages, so even if your little one can't tackle the slide, it will be tons of fun to watch and get people wet!
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!

click above to say screw the drought im going to waste some water! Waterslides to benefit the California Drought! Sometimes human stupidity is just over the top hilarious - who comes up with this stuff....
Sacramento be prepared for low water pressure on June 13th and limited your shower that day to 1/2 gallon please - no watering the lawn, garden or washing your vehicle - as thousands will be throwing water up in the air like they just don't care - Cypris Hill should headline :-)
This seems like fun event but on principle it should not occur. We all have water anxiety as we should due to this four years of drought and having a big water slide is not helping convince people to minimize their usage. This is clearly something that should be put off until we have a year we can celebrate water, not worry about it.
Is this for real?! Who are these ignorant people who put on events like this, and who supports them? If you have children, you should probably do your part as a parent and educate your children in world issues and how to do their part the better the world. Ignorant people create more ignorant people, and those people have amazing ideas like this one 👍
