People slide down a giant water slide during Slide the City on Main Street in Salt Lake City on Saturday, July 19, 2014. The all-day event featured a 1,000-foot-long slip and slide with a pool at its end that spanned Main Street from the Capitol to North Temple. Tickets to ride the slide started at $25 and, according to the event's website, the Salt Lake City event sold out. Organizers predicted as many as 5,000 people would ride the slide through the city before it closed at sunset.
