A new event in O’Fallon this summer will turn Mexico Road into a giant water slide for one weekend in July.
O’Fallon Parks and Recreation’s Slide the City event, scheduled for July 25 – 26, will also feature food trucks and live entertainment, said Marsha Seymour, O’Fallon’s Tourism and Festivals Manager.
A part of Mexico Road near Fort Zumwalt West High School will be closed off for the event, and the giant slide will take advantage of one of the hills. Parking will be available at the high school.
Participants must purchase a wristband to use the slide, and several levels are available: a one-slide wristband, a three-slide wristband, or a VIP slider wristband that allows early admission and unlimited slides.
Each pass comes with freebies–depending on admission level, those may include mouth guards, water guns, tubes, t-shirts, and hats. Seymour said that the event was expected to sell out.
Tubes are required to use the slide.
Admission wristbands are not yet available for sale. Watch 70 West Sentinel or the O’Fallon Parks & Rec page for more information as it becomes available.
