STAMFORD, Conn. – Prospect will be transformed into the biggest block party of the summer when Slide the City arrives on Sunday, July 17.

In summer 2015, more than 2,500 sliders slipped and splashed down the giant water slide. Event organizers expect 2016 to be bigger and better than ever.

“This unique event was a huge success last year, but for 2016 we are going to be adding some fun entertainment to give it more of a community feel,” said John Malfatto, Slide the City co-owner. “You can experience your hometown like never before.”

Families, friends and neighbors are invited to take a break from the heat, speeding through three city blocks on inner tubes. Along with the one-of-a-kind slide, the block party will include food, music, local vendors and street entertainers. Sliding starts at 9 a.m.

Online registration is now open here . Participants can purchase a single, triple, ultimate or all day slider pass during a selected wave time and are encouraged to sign up before Friday, May 13 to take advantage of the current rate. Pricing starts at $10. All those over 5 years of age and 46 inches tall are welcome to slide.
