Slip Sliding Away


There seems to be a growing number of for-profit street events that travel from city to city. The latest one is Slide The City. The organizers put up a four-block long water slide down Market Street and sold tickets for a fair amount of money. A tube or inflatable slide was required. It you bought a three-slide ticket they threw one into the deal.

Downtown St. Louis doesn't have much slope so no one got up a lot of speed. Still, people seemed to be having fun. Lots more where these pictures came from.

Looks like fun.

It drew quite a crowd of people so they must have made a profit.

It does seem to have brought out the crowds!

They should have started it at the top of a highrise. That would have added a bit of drama at the conclusion. They could have ended in the Big Muddy. No, they didn't ask for my suggestions.
