Dickson Street will be transformed into a giant slip-and-slide once again this weekend.

According to their website, the annual Dickson Street Slide will return to the street on Sunday, Aug. 26 from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Tickets are $30, and are good for unlimited slides the day of the event. The event this year will benefit the Dickson Street Merchants Association. Local Greek organizations working to staff the event will also earn donations to the local charities of their choice.

All participants must purchase tickets and pre-register before the event. Sliders will be verified at check-in, and given a wrist band to be granted access to the slide.

Registration and ticket information is available at dicksonstreetslide.com.
