Winston-Salem Slide the City canceled; ticket holders urged to come to Salisbury

Slide the City recently announced that Winston-Salem will no longer be a stop on its 2015 Tour. Despite working with city officials since January, low registration numbers have forced event organizers to cancel the event. Meanwhile, Slide the City Salisbury is gaining popularity, organizers say.

“We are disappointed that we will not be making an appearance in Winston-Salem this year,” said Slide the City event director Brad Behle. “It is great that there is another event just a week later and only 40 minutes away from the Winston-Salem venue.”

On Aug. 29, Salisbury will get a slippery makeover when adventure seekers speed down Main Street on inner tubes. All Winston-Salem ticket holders are invited to experience the Guinness World Record Breaking Slide in Salisbury; or, if schedules do not allow the trip, their money will be refunded.

“Although Winston-Salem is not in the cards for us this season, it is fortuitous that another Slide the City event is happening so close to the area,” said Slide the City co-founder John Malfatto. “We hope that Winston-Salem participants feel welcome at the Salisbury event; the more the merrier!”

This family friendly water party has visited many states and made several international appearances this summer. Event organizers are expecting thousands of sliders to slip down their massive three-lane slide. Participants can purchase a Single, Triple or Super Slider Pass for Slide the City Salisbury and are encouraged to sign up before Aug. 28 to take advantage of the current rate. Pricing starts at $21.

Those over 5 years of age and at least 46 inches tall are welcome to slide. Visit for more information about dates and locations or check out what fans have to say on the Slide the City Facebook page
