Making a splash in Akron

Today, "Side the City" a 1,000 foot traveling slip 'n slide made its way to Akron.


We signed up a couple of months ago and this morning we were among the 3,000 people who took a turn at riding the water slide along University Avenue down to the Lock 3 area.


Organizers said this was one of the steepest slides they have set up.  The slide has 8 sections that weigh 150 pounds each.  After the sections are put in place and inflated, the slide is filled with water from fire hydrants.


At the bottom there is a small pool and water is recycled back to the top to keep it flowing all day.
