MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A 1,000-foot-long slip-n-slide is coming to the Capital City this summer.

It promises to be a fun way to cool off, and a great way to support the United Way. 

It's called The Urban Slide, and it's coming to Montgomery for two days in June. The slide will be set up downtown on Montgomery Street. A constant stream of water flowing down both channels will help sliders propel themselves down the slide. The nighttime slide is equipped with LED lights and black lights.

HandsOn River Region will partner with The Urban Slide to help recruit volunteers needed for the event. Those interested in volunteering for The Urban Slide should contact HandsOn River Region at 334-264-3335 (between hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday-Friday)

"The event will feature not only the actual slip and slide itself, but food trucks, vendors, local businesses downtown, music playing during the entire slide. A bag check area where you can put your belongings while you slide. Water-themed games, a photo booth and other events," said Meg Lewis, Director of Tourism & Special Projects.

The Urban Slide will be in Montgomery on June 6-7. It's a family friendly event that will go on until after midnight. You can register and purchase slides ahead of time by going to The Urban Slide's website. Pricing starts at $10 per slide, but prices will probably go up closer to the event. Tickets can also be purchased at the event.
