Picture your childhood slip n’ slide, maybe it was just a stretch of garbage bags taped together with a hose for lubrication, maybe it was a legitimate Slip n’ slide with a nice pool full of foam at the bottom. Forget those poor excuses for water slides and imagine a huge padded slide stretching down multiple blocks of Main Street, participants flying down on inflatable tubes and surrounded by cheering crowds. Sounds pretty epic, right?
Slide the Main is a concept that came together over a beer night and has sparked a huge amount of interest thanks to social media. While the idea of setting up a water slide on Main Street is not set in stone, and some say it may not happen, but the organizers have started a petition to slide the main and the mayor this Father’s Day (June 21st) in Vancouver.
