Who isn’t excited for Slide the City?? This is going to be so much fun for all ages. A 1000 foot slip and slide going down Sunny Slopes in South Park. This will be a perfect event to bring the whole family too. I can’t wait and my kids are so excited!


Participants in Slide the City will ride inflatables down a 1,000-ft. slip and slide. This one-of-a-kind experience will help people “slide into summer.” The first event of its kind, Slide the City has seen massive growth since it started in 2014. This original concept went viral when the video was released, and this year promises to be bigger, better, and wetter. “This will be one of the highlights of your year,” said Slide The City Founder, T.R. Gourley “Get ready for the slide of your life!”

Summer time is approaching fast and we are bringing 1000 feet of slick vinyl to brighten your city streets. Slide the City is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event. There will be live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit Pittsburgh!

Come dressed to impress because it’s not every day you can strut through town with your hot bod, cool dance moves and slick slides. Did we mention 1000 feet? Yeah, that’s over 3 football fields.

Make sure to bring your water buckets, floaties, and water guns (non-realistic of course), to squirt, spray, splash, and get all attending soaked.

Is there an age or height limit?
All who are over 46 inches tall and over 5 years old are invited to slide, but remember if you’re under 18 you’ll need to get a sign off from your legal guardians.

Are there group rates available?
If you have a group with 20 or more participants send us an email.

What do you do to address water conservation?
Water conservation is also a priority at our events. We strive to have zero environmental impact on the community. The Slide was designed to have zero water loss, and it treats and recycles the water safely and efficiently throughout the day. When permitted, we donate the water back to the community. Methods of disposal include local reclamation centers, parks, golf courses and other places dependent upon local regulations.

Strawberry Milkshake Cookies

I have started baking a lot more and just made these yummy strawberry cookies with strawberry buttercream icing. They are super simple to make and they are the perfect color for Valentine’s Day. For the cookies you only need three ingredients which is why I picked these to try out.


All you you need is strawberry cake mix, I used Duncan Hines, eggs and vegetable oil. And the icing is real simple too just need confectioners sugar, a stick of butter and the only strawberry flavor that I had in my house was Strawberry Quick milk and some red food coloring.


1 Box of strawberry cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup of oil

Preheat oven to 375. Mix cake mix, eggs, and oil in bowl on low with a mixer until blended together. It will be thicker than the way when you make a cake. On a non stick cookie sheet just drop by spoonfuls about two inches apart and bake for about 10-12 minutes. Take out and let them cool completely be fore icing them. image

Strawberry Butter Cream Icing~

1 stick of butter softened

4 & 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar

6-8 tablespoons of strawberry milk

Beat the butter with a mixer until creamy. Slowly add in the confectioners sugar a little at a time and continue to mix. Once you have about 1/2 of the powdered sugar added you can add about two tablespoons of the milk and keep mixing and adding the powdered sugar and the strawberry milk one tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency that you want. After you have it mixed add 1-2 drops of food coloring depending on how dark you want the icing to be. I used two drops. Blend the food coloring in with your mixer and you are ready to ice the cookies. I added a few red sprinkles too just for some more color.

Simple and and easy recipe and the taste like a strawberry milkshake!
