Mandan will hold the area's first "Slide the City" event in late August of 2015. At Tuesday's city commission meeting, plans were discussed for the 1,000 foot water slide that will run down Sunset Dr. from Division St. NW to 6th St. NW. Staff members from the Mandan Parks District say they are planning other activities like live music, vendor booths and a beer garden to make the event fun for everyone. Between 120 and 150 volunteers are needed to run the festival. For every volunteer, $60.00 will be donated to help fund Mandan's universal playground.
