Think of a hot sunny day, and then think of what would make that day perfect. Is it a gigantic slip-and-slide that goes on forever? Because that's exactly what's coming this summer! Slide the City is bringing to San Jose a 1,000 foot slip-and-slide, and if you're like me and can't quite picture how long that is, it's the size of THREE FOOTBALL FIELDS! If you haven’t heard about Slide The City yet, 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, plus come well equipped for a huge water fight that is bound to happen! With tickets, you get a water gun, but come armed with water balloons, super soakers, or anything else that can help you defend yourself and get others soaking wet!

Coming to San Jose, CA- June 2015

Slide The City has officially announced San Jose and the site says that registration will be opening soon. According to the site, the massive slip-and-slide will be hitting San Jose 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/san-jose/

We're still not sure where the exact location of the slide will be in the streets of San Jose.

There's also a set up planned for both San Francisco, and Oakland!

Ages- children must be either over 46 inches tall or over 5 years old in order to slide. Anyone under the age of 18 will need a legal guardians signature to participate. 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!

Umm...did we forget about the drought? I'm all for fun in the sun and whatnot, but this just seems really wasteful. Is there maybe an alternative we could consider in lieu of wasting water during a drought?

who's bright idea was this ...we're in the middle of a drought people...I'm not allowed to have a garden this year I get a huge monster fine if I waste water so I cut back I cut back and I cut back some more and then somebody approved to have water running down the street! This just makes me mad.! who approved this ? They should be fired! does our governor know about this? this is a slap in the face to all of us who are trying our best to conserve.

People who are saying, 'drought this, drought!' need to realize, just because we're in a drought... doesn't mean we are wasting water.

California water comes from many different states, underground and surface (rain). Water collected underground, are still collected in some areas over california. So stop this nonsense of a 'drought'. No one will ever run out of water. Costs will rise yes, but that is inevitable.

Go enjoy yourself and stop being prudes.

Really people, your going to bit** about people have a blast together. You probably don't even know what it's like to have fun anymore. So sad for you :-( To complain about kids and adults trying to have fun without alcohol or drug is just ridiculous. Get a life.
My family and I will be there! I will be letting all my friends about the slides too! The more the marriers!!

Conserving water is about using it wisely and this is a wise use! Just like grass at public parks is wise and front lawns that nobody uses are unwise. But we all are entitled to our own opinions I guess.

The first thing I thought was "wow that seems cool", then "hey ummm, aren't we in a drought". This might be a chance to have some playful fun and for it to generate some money but when we have events like this it sends a really bad message that we are wasteful no matter where the water is coming from. Somewhere somehow this whole thing could turn on us when California is desperate for water. In fact paying for this event is like saying you are ok with spending more money on water I heard everyones complaints about gas.

Did any of you think about the vendor having the water sent in by paying a water truck?
