Slide in the City

Huge slip and slide returning to Toronto this summer

Last summer a massive 1,000-foot water slide was erected in Downsview Park, attracting hundreds of fun-loving and overheated Torontonians. Well, good news for fans of the event, Slide the City will be returning this year on July 16, so you can bask in childhood nostalgia once again.

All other details surrounding the event are TBA, but I'm sure we can expect similar shenanigans to last year's bash: branded tubes, bikinis and hour-long line-ups.

While you wait for more info, I suggest trying to get your hands on some Taylor Swift worthy pool floats to glide down the slide on.

Will you be going to Slide the City 2016? Let us know in the comments.
