Imagine how epic a 1000 feet of slip-and-slide taking over the streets of Montreal would be, transforming the city into a water party like no other. Montreal may get the chance, thanks Slide the City, a travelling North American water slide attraction that transforms cities into a pop-up water park, and if we can trust their official website, Slide the City is coming to Montreal.
We can't say for sure when Slide the City will be coming to Montreal, as their event listing currently lists the date as TBD. Don't worry though, "TBD" is tacked on to a bunch of different event listing for cities across Canada and the US, so we may have to wait a while, but at least Slide The City definitely has Montreal in mind.
In terms of placement, we think St. Denis is the ideal spot for the gigantic water slide. Why? Well, the street has a solid incline (not to steep but not too flat) and has already hosted somewhat similiar events like Mud Rocker and Shack Attack. Plus, a big water party would mean some serious traffic for St. Denis stores and restos who have been hurting for business lately.
To get an idea of what to expect at a Slide the City event, the website promises live music, food, drinks, and the gigantic 1000 foot slip and slide that makes the event truly epic. Registration is required for the event, which can all be done on the website prior to the event, but again, we're not sure when that'll be, just be sure we'll let you know when we do.
For more info and any updates, head over to Slide the City's official website and check in at the Montreal listing every once in a while for any updates. To get you pumped in the meantime, check out the trailer below.
