Mandan Park District Secures 3rd Annual Slide the City for August 2017
MANDAN, N.D. — The Mandan Park District has committed to hosting the 3rd Annual Slide the City in Mandan, ND on August 26, 2017 from 10am – 7pm. This event will take place again on Sunset Drive adjacent to Mandan High School. The Mandan Park Board approved pursuing hosting the event again in 2017 during the Monday, February 13, 2017 meeting. On Tuesday, March 7, 2017 the City of Mandan approved street closures and water use for the event. The event will require a portion of Sunset Drive to be shut down to vehicle traffic, allowing participants safe access to the slide.
Slide the City is a family-friendly 1,000 foot slip-and-slide water party event. To add to the atmosphere of this fun event, food vendors will be onsite.
This one day event is open to the public. Ticket rates vary according to the number of times you would like to go down the slide and when you purchase your tickets. Tickets vary from $15 to $100 per ticket. Tickets and rates are available at www.slidethecity.com. Onsite registration will be located in the north east high school parking lot. Single-slide tickets will be available for purchase the day of the event if the event is not sold out. Substantial parking will be available in the school parking lots and off street parking in the adjacent neighborhoods.
Because safety is our number one priority, we have established standards and procedures to ensure a safe ride for the sliders. All patrons must sign a waiver, riders must be 46 inches tall and five years old to ride, and all participants are required to use a tube. An EMT and a paramedic will be onsite all day staffing an ambulance in case of an emergency.
