Started by a group of people who want to put an end to Vancouver’s ‘no fun city’ label by doing something exciting. Unlike the for profit slide the city which has dozens of safety issues Slide the Main is a community event BY the people FOR the people.
We are inspired by Bristol’s water slide event and are in discussion with Bristol’s slide organizer to make a Vancouver version of this event with the well developed safety features and strict operating procedures.
Within the first 24 hours of our website launch, we have received:
-Over 6000 site visits and 300 registrations within first 24 hours
-picked up by 5 news channels and eventually 8 by the end of the week.
-couple dozen volunteer/organizer signups
-Most discussed article on VanCityBuzz
-Most anticipated event in Vancouver
