Slide the City, which brings giant water slides to the streets of selected cities, has announced that they will put on an event in Duluth this year, and you can get your wristbands now to slide down 12th Avenue East and into a big block party.

On September 10, Slide the City says they will transform 12th Avenue East in Duluth into "the biggest block party of the summer".  Families and friends can slip and splash down the giant water slide while onlookers enjoy the surrounding block party.

If you want to give the slide a try, you'll get to speed through three city blocks on inner tubes.  The block party will include food, music, local vendors and more.
