Slide the City helped people beat the heat Saturday, Aug. 13, in Chattanooga. 

Slide the City is a 1,000-foot-long water slide — think your backyard Slip 'N' Slide on steroids — that flowed down Fifth Street all the way across Broad Street in downtown Chattanooga.

Visitors slid down its padded surface in inner tubes, splashing through three city blocks.
