Slide the City will take place in Sylvan Lake on July 25

For one day only this summer, Centennial Street will be transformed into a giant slip-and-slide.

On July 25, Slide the City will arrive in Sylvan Lake with its 1,000-foot slip-and-slide in tow. The event will see participants slide down the large slide on inflatable objects, through a process proclaimed by organizers of “turning hills into water-sliding thrills.”

The event began in 2014 and has grown significantly to include scheduled stops in cities all across North America this summer. The Town of Sylvan Lake noted last Thursday that Sylvan Lake was selected as a host due to the town’s considerably large summer tourist population — around 761,000 throughout July and August.

Registration for the Sylvan Lake event is required, and was scheduled to open earlier this week. Passes are available for purchase at

Since its inception, Slide the City has grown to have a global presence, with events now taking place in countries as far away as Japan and Australia.
