Nyack, August 28 — Event organizers say as many as 7500 people enjoyed Slide The City yesterday. That included more than 5000 small water surfers who pre-registered and an estimated 2500 who signed up on Saturday.
What’s Slide The City? A multi-city annual tour which reminds baby boomer parents of the Slip ‘n Slides they once bought for their kids for the backyard — but now supersized and down a serious hill in downtown Nyack. “It’s a childhood dream come true: kids of all ages in tubes slippin’ down the most gigantic water slide ever — right in the middle of Nyack,” said Slide The City owner and co-Founder Spencer Hunn.
