1,000 feet of slippery padded vinyl is coming to a city street in Moline this August.

City streets will get a slippery makeover this summer when Slide the City hits Moline with 1,000+ feet of padded vinyl. Slide the City turns three city blocks into water-sliding thrills for the event, which was created in an effort to get people outside, having fun, and connecting with their community.

“We spend so much time walking, running, or driving around our cities,” said Co-founder TR Gourley. “But how many times have you been able to say you slid down your city streets?“

Participants in Slide the City will ride inflatables down a 1,000-ft. water slide. This one-of-a-kind experience will help people “slide into summer,” while supporting a good cause. A portion of the proceeds of will benefit a local charity.

“We want to make a difference while we’re making memories,” Gourley said.

The first event of its kind, Slide the City has seen massive growth since it started in 2014 This original concept went viral when the video was released, and this year promises to be bigger, better, and wetter.

“This will be one of the highlights of your year,” said Gourley “Get ready for the slide of your life!”

Slide The City: Quad Cities will take place on Saturday, August 8 on 15th street, between 12th Avenue and 8th Avenue. All are welcome and invited to join in the fun. Tickets range in price and are available at a discounted price when purchased early.
