Slide the City™ promises participants the “slide of their lives”

Slide the City

How many times have you been able to say you slid down your city streets?

June 23, 2015 – Earlier this month Slide the City™ enthusiasts in Fort Worth broke the Guinness World Record for “longest distance slid on a slip ‘n slide.” On August 8, this massive thousand-foot slide will be stopping in Billings. This one-of-a-kind event encourages families in the community to get outside and stay active during the warm summer months.

“We spend so much time walking, running and driving around our cities,” said Slide the City™ event co-director TR Gourley. “But how many times have you been able to say you slid down your city streets?”

The Upper Sky Way Loop will be transformed into a water-lover’s oasis as participants ride inflatables down this enormous slide, which spans three city blocks. Event organizers anticipate that thousands will come to “slide into summer.” With music, local vendors and giveaways throughout the day, this family-friendly event promises to be a highlight of the summer.

A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to The Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County (begreatyellowstone.org). Their mission is “to enable all young people, especially those in need, to realize their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.” With four Clubhouses they are able to serve over 650 youth a day. Members enjoy a world-class Club experience filled with quality programming such as math, science & technology, art, sports & recreation, help with homework, and art all under the guidance of professional staff.

“We love what The Boys & Girls Club of Yellowstone County are doing to help the youth in Billings,” said event co-director Brandon Jay. “We are proud to be working with such a great organization.”

Participants can purchase a one, three or unlimited slide pass and are encouraged to sign up before June 27 to take advantage of the current promotion. Pricing starts at $16.

All those over 5 years old and 46 inches tall are welcome to slide! Visit http://www.slidethecity.com/events/billings/ for more information about dates and locations or check out what fans have to say on the Slide the City™ Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/slidethecity.
