    Summer is heating up and a massive slip and slide is coming to the streets of Hartford!

    Yes, you heard it right: a 1,000 foot waterslide will be set up at Bushnell Park between Jewell Street and Capital Avenue on Saturday Aug. 22.

    There will be music, food, drinks and, of course, the chance to slide from noon to 5 p.m. Not only is this event a great way to get everyone outside and enjoy the community, is it charitable as well. A portion of the proceeds will go to Hartford Business improvement District.

    The Hartford Business Improvement District’s mission is to bring about positive and lasting change by enhancing the economic vitality and quality of life within downtown Hartford. This organization hopes to create a safer, cleaner and overall better environment for Hartford.

    So break out your bathing suit and sign up to make memories of the summer! For more information and registration: visit

    The slide will also be in Stamford on July 26.
