Slide the City returns to Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- It's not everyday you get to slide through the streets of downtown Knoxville in an inner tube, but that's exactly what hundreds did on Saturday.

Slide-the-City returned to Knoxville. People could pay to slide down the 1,000 foot water slide.

For some this wasn't their first time on the slide.

"We keep saying 'this is the last time,' but we end up having a blast and coming back up, so we it's a good way to get out of the house and spend time with friends or family," said Jessica Hannah.

Some of the proceeds from the slide go to East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
