Slide the City Canceled

slidethecity

Unlimited wristbands will be allowed to slide an hour before the slide opens and an hour after it closes. In addition to that, you’ll get a wristband that gives you the ability to slide as many times as you like during the day. You will also receive some other goodies including a mouthguard, tattoo, t-shirt, tube (we require sliding on tubes), drawstring bag and a hat to keep your nose from getting burned.

Update (7/23/15): a message from Slide the City -“Unfortunately, Slide the City in JACKSON, MS is CANCELED. **If you bought ANY TICKETS to this event scheduled for 7/31/15 or 8/1/15 YOU WILL BE FULLY REFUNDED. (if you have any further questions please email slyd@slidethecity.com)** So sorry to cancel such a fun, summer event but there just wasn’t enough interest in the event or enough ticket sales to pull it off this year. Hopefully we can see you at another Slide the City event around the country!

If you’re looking for a way to cool off, there’s good news: Slide the City is coming to downtown Jackson.

Slide the City is the giant “Slip ‘N Slide,” taking “Fondren downtown” to Amite at State Street on July 31 and August 1. The event is a fundraiser for Fondren Renaissance.

Unlimited, VIP passes allow you to slide an hour before the slide opens and an hour after it closes and the ability to slide as many times as you like during the session. VIP’s also get a mouthguard, tattoo, t-shirt, tube (we require sliding on tubes), drawstring bag and hat. A three-slide and one slide band is also available. Two separate sliding sessions are planned. Tickets are limited (only a handful will be sold day-of).

Multiple lanes will accommodate various ages, from small children to the more ambitious slider.
