Super-sized water slide coming to Roswell for first time

Families can enjoy one more moment of summer fun before Fulton County schools start again on Monday.

The city of Roswell is rolling out a 150-foot slip-and-slide for the first event of its kind this weekend.

The Slip & Slide Extravaganza is one of the final installments of the city's "Summer of Fun" event series, organized by the Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department.

"We're actually really excited about it," city employee Steven Malone told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "We've talked about doing something like this for years but never had the opportunity."

This Saturday, families can take a spin on the slide and enjoy free ice cream. There is no maximum capacity for the event, but free ice cream will be limited to the first 100-150 people, according to Malone.

Slip & Slide Extravaganza. 11:00 a.m. Saturday, August 6. Free. Leita Thompson Memorial Park. 1200 Woodstock Road, Roswell.
