If you are still looking for something fun to take your kids to this afternoon, come out to the Chips Not Dead Yet Memorial Mile. Even if you don’t want to run in the race yourself, there will be huge street party with a lot of fun events, games & music.
We’re proud to be supporting the event as a sponsor and, in addition to providing security for the event, we will have our giant inflatable slide set-up at 3:00pm in the West end of the Safeway parking lot at West 10th & Tolmie Street
The races start at 3:00pm (you can check out the official schedule here).
West 10th Avenue will be closed down to traffic between Sasamat and Tolmie Streets between 3:00pm and 11:00pm… in addition to the race, the giant Provident Security slide, lots of kids games and entertainment, and the main stage (with performances by Current Swell at 3:15pm, Armchair Cynics at 4:00pm, Run GMC at 7:30pm and Daniel Wesley at 9:00pm) there will also be a huge tented beer garden.
We hope to see you there.
On a somewhat related note, whenever we have the slide up, people always ask about how long it takes to put up, take down, etc. So, in case you were also dying to know how the slide gets put up, click on the clip below to watch a training video we made for our slide crew…
