Date set for Calgary’s gigantic slip-and-slide
CALGARY – We now know the date that an enormous slip-and-slide will be coming to Calgary.
The 300 meter-long waterslide is part of a travelling event called Slide the City.
Organizers are visiting cities across the U.S. and Canada to host family-friendly water parties featuring ‘the biggest slip-and-slide ever to hit asphalt.’
The wet and wild event will be coming to Calgary on Saturday, August 1st, according to the Slide the City website.
Participants will be given a wristband that allows them to slide down the soapy wet vinyl at least once.
They’ll also be given a mouth guard and a water gun, but have to bring their own inflatable tube.
It’s unknown at this point where in Calgary the event will be held.
The first-ever Slide the City event was held in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2014.
There were 3,000 tickets available and the event sold out.
