What better way to spend a summer day than sliding down a 1,000 foot slip-and-slide?! If you're like me and can't quite picture how long that is, it's the size of THREE FOOTBALL FIELDS! Very exciting. If you haven’t heard about Slide The City, it's a family friendly water party event with live music, food, water fights, and of course the mecca of slip-and-slides.
Bring your floatie to slide down with, but also don't forget water balloons, water guns, and anything else that will be able to get people soaking wet!
Coming to Oakland, CA- June 2015
Slide The City has officially announced Oakland and the site says that registration will be opening soon. According to the site, the massive slip-and-slide will be hitting Oakland streets June of 2015, but no exact date set. In order to make sure you get the announcement for dates, and 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/oakland/
We're still not sure where the exact location of the slide will be in the streets of Oakland.
There's also a set up planned for both San Francisco, and San Jose!

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!
