Slide the City Comes to Asheville!

This event has been cancelled - Click here for more information.

The January heat wave that swept through Asheville earlier this week was delightful to say the least.  The warmth whisked us back to a time not too long ago when we donned sunhats instead of snowcaps and cotton shirts instead of sweatshirts. It’s also reminded us of the many fun activities that we want to begin planning for when the warm weather comes to stay! Though Memorial Day Weekend is a historically busy time in Asheville, one activity has us downright giddy with excitement – that’s right, the slip and slide. An enormous city length slip and slide, to be more precise.

Slide the City has transformed many a busy Main Street into a festival of fun over the past few years.  From Des Moines to Tallahassee, Sioux Falls to Birmingham, Slide the City has brought that immense childlike joy only accomplished with the combination of water, slick vinyl and complete uninhibited fun.

This Memorial Day Weekend, bring the family to discover the joy that only an enormous vinyl slide can bring! The fun extends from 12 Noon to 5 PM on May 23rd and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Asheville Parks and Greenways Foundation. Music will be played, food will be had, and people will get soaked!
