The giant, record-breaking slide from Slide the City draws large crowds all over the country as people are eager to participate in this unique event. As participants wait for their turn to slide, they are often faced with boredom while standing in line. Short Vine’s very own Big Splash event will take place one street over from Jefferson Avenue to combat that boredom – so the fun never stops!
On June 18, 2016, Short Vine is hosting its first annual Big Splash event. Coinciding at the same time as Slide the City (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.), Big Splash will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on Vine Street (between Corry and Charlton). Stop by for FREE and exciting games like watermelon bowling, giant plinko and a colored water balloon fight that you will not want to miss. If you’re not in the playful spirit, there will be free ice cream and a tropical beach area to satisfy all of your lounging needs. Don’t forget to bring the kids along as there will be a bouncy house and tons of prizes to win, ranging from sunglasses to phone speakers.
To top it off, New Belgium Brewing Company will feature its Heavy Melon Watermelon Lime Ale that will be sold at all of the restaurants on Short Vine to accompany great fun with great taste. Enjoy a blast for all ages on Saturday, June 18, before, after or while you are participating in Slide the City!
