2. SLIDE THE CITY
Slide the City kicks off summer by bringing 1000 feet of slick vinyl, that’s over 3 football fields in size, to brighten the city streets.

Make sure to bring your water buckets, floaties, and water guns (non-realistic of course), to squirt, spray, splash, and get all attending soaked.

Coney Island is a one stop location for all things fun. Of course you can enjoy the beach, lots of places to eat and grab an icy margarita or beer by the boardwalk, Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, cotton candies, caramel apples, the Aquarium and an amusement park with tons of fun rides.
