Well, Here's Your Chance To Splash Down A 2,000-Foot-Long Slip 'N Slide Through Fort Worth

It's not altogether clear what the just-announced Panther Fest is out in Fort Worth — just that it's being put on by the Trinity River Vision Authority, that it's going down on June 6, that it's meant as a celebration of Fort Worth's birthday and that it'll feature local “beer, bands & bites.”

But there is at least one aspect that'll make this deal a little different from the increasingly indistinguishable regional roster of events that self-identify as festivals: As part of the festivities, Panther Fest will feature what the Dallas Morning News reports to be a 2,000-foot-long Slip 'N Slide that'll rip through the streets of Fort Worth.

The slide will come courtesy of the nationally touring Slide the City brand, which has long promised North Texas stops but has yet to follow through on that word till no. (Still no word on a Dallas-specific date, although, promises the organization, that's still “coming soon.”

Anyway, if you're curious about what this will look like, this video from a Slide the City even held in Salt Lake City should answer your questions:

To reiterate, though: That Salt Lake slide was just 1,000 feet long. This one, which will run right along North Main Street, promises double the pleasure, and double the fun at 2,000 feet long.

Entry into Panther Fest itself will be free, but tickets to slide will run anywhere from $15 for a single run-through to $50 for all the slips you can handle. They're not on sale just yet, though. Still, to guarantee your passes, you might wanna just head this link's way to sign up for Slide The City's notifications for when sales do go live.
