Rexburg Rotary hosted “Slide the City” down the hill on 7th South Saturday.
“A thousand-foot slip and slide we set up on the streets, it’s called Slide the City” said Event Director, Brandon Jay.
If you weren’t at Slide the City you definitely missed out.
Thomas Kieran, an employee for Slide the City said “I can’t deny it. I love this thing.”
“Everybody should have came down here and had fun,” said junior slider Larissa.
Hundreds of people showed up to the event, including a bride and groom who were married an hour before they decided to attend Slide the City.
Besides having a good time, the national company is all about providing clean summer fun to local communities.
“Our event works with a lot of local nonprofit organizations across the nation. We drive home the local food vendors, local everybody, we even hire local people to set up the slide,” said Jay.
The employees all work their hardest to make sure their local event is one to remember.
“You know it sounds like a fun event. I guess I was just chasing something fun and a challenge,” Jay said.
“Why did I choose to be part of Slide the City? Have you looked around? This is probably one of the funnest events I’ve ever been to in my entire life for a couple of reasons, it’s a thousand foot slip and slide first of all. And I love the people I work with, it’s fun to meet new people. We love it here in Rexburg, Idaho,” Kieran said.
It seems bringing people together is overall the most important part of Slide the City.
“Honestly, really just come on down. If you missed it this year come back next year,” Kieran said.
The main goal behind the event was to move kids away from the TV, and bring together communities the best way Slide the City knows how.
