The city of Mandan has greenlighted the closing of Six Avenue Northwest between Division and Sixth Streets for the Slide the City event, to be held August 29.

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., those looking to cool off from the summer heat can come out to eat, drink, dance, and have fun.

Oh, and there will also be a 100-foot, 3-lane water slide.

And it's even for a good cause: up to $9,000 raised at the event will be applied toward the $500,000 price tag on the friendly-to-all-abilities universal playground at Eagles Park.

The street closure will be active between 4 a.m. and 11 p.m. Aug. 29 to allow ample time for set-up and break-down. Those who purchase a VIP pass can get in an hour early.
