'Slide the City' washes over Stamford

A 1,000-foot waterslide covered the pavement in downtown Stamford Sunday for the city's first ever "Slide the City" event.



Crew members were on the premises as early as 3 a.m. to install the industrial vinyl slide on Prospect Street between Hoyt Street and Latham Park.



Officials said a lot of work went into the assembling process. Before securing the slide, the crew had to layer a foam substance beneath it.



Event directors said they had been planning the installation for months.



The next Slide the City event will be next month in Hartford.
