The first Slip, Slide and Play event is set to make a big splash in Jefferson City this weekend.

Ellis-Porter Riverside Pool, located at 320 Ellis-Porter Drive, will be transformed into a water park from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday.

Hosted by the Jefferson City Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department, the event will feature three water slides of different lengths, inflatable obstacle courses, a water maze, batting cages and the Bubble Bus from St. Louis. There will also be concessions.

"We were looking for a new event to host, and we incorporated a giant water slide with the Prison Break (Race) and Catch Me If You Can (Fun Run and Obstacle Course), and we thought it would be fun to have a couple of water slides and make it a fun water day," said Phil Stiles, Parks Department program manager of special events.

People can purchase wristbands in advance for $10 for youths 17 years old and younger and $15 for adults at The Linc, 1299 Lafayette St. They can also purchase wristbands at the event for $15 for youths and $20 for adults.

The fee also includes admission to the pool that afternoon, Stiles said. The pool will be open noon-7 p.m. that day.

Parents wishing to watch their children but not partake in the event do not have to purchase wristbands, Stiles said.
