BEND, OR -- A massive vinyl water slide will shutdown College Way in northwest Bend on Saturday, although the weather has many questioning how many will come out to participate in the much-anticipated Slide the City

 

Initially, city officials denied the permit request by event organizers. City Manager Eric King says they were trying to be mindful of drought conditions. "Their use of water in their initial application was very excessive, how that water was going to be disposed of violated city code. We have very specific criteria we look at. It’s not necessarily ‘we like this, or we don’t like it.’ It was just being consistent with our code." King tells KBND slide organizers plan to recycle the water, which was not in its initial permit application.
 
The 1000' vinyl water slide will close one of Bend's most highly traveled hills, to allow participants to slide down College Way, between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
 
With unseasonably fall-like weather this week, Saturday's forecast calls for sunshine with highs in the mid-60s.
