Here's something to keep tabs on for later this year ...
Slide the City, described as a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event that's traveling the nation, is planning stops in Raleigh and Durham, according to its website.
All it says it that the events are "coming soon." There's no specific date or location other than the city. I contacted the organization and was told by a customer service representative that they are still working out the details.
According to Slide the City's website, the events featured slides stretching 1000 feet ... longer than three football fields. Kids must be taller than 46 inches or older than 5 years to participate. Kids under 18 need to get sign off from their parent or legal guardian. The website says the cost is $15 for early bird registration, $20 for regular registration and $25 to sign up on the day of.
The Slide the City website has some more details and an option to sign up for an email newsletter so you can get the latest.
