Slide the city comes to Richmond on Saturday, June 18th! It is an event where a 1,000 foot water slide will be going down third Byrd Street in downtown Richmond. The slides will be padded, but you will need an inner tube to ride the slide. The only available tickets left are the triple slider which includes three rides (on any wave you choose), a tube, a mouth guard, and a drawstring bag all for the price of $35. The all day slider costs $99 and comes with a tube, a hat, a t-shirt, a drawstring bag, and the ability to slide all day long as many times as you would like. The ultimate slider is $55 and comes with a drawstring bag, a tube, a hat, and you can also slide as much as you want between the times 9 a.m. and noon. Everything else has already been sold out, but there will be food, music, drinks, and of course the big slide! Sign ups are coming to a close, so don’t miss your chance to sign up for this fun day.
