Remember the ’90s? How about 1994? Brazil was about to beat Italy to win its fourth World Cup, and the town of Silverthorne was in the process of constructing a new Recreation Center — big things were happening in the world.
The Silverthorne Recreation Center is celebrating 20 years of success by bringing back some oldies but goodies. Everyone’s favorite, the slide ’n’ slip, will be back at Rainbow Park starting at 1 p.m. Friday, June 27; Friday, July 11; and Friday, Aug. 22. Kids of all ages can cool off while sliding down the hill in Rainbow Park.
“We are so excited to bring back this fun event,” said Nancy Bomgardner, special event coordinator. “When we began brainstorming ideas to celebrate 20 years, we reflected on how popular and successful the slide ’n’ slips from the ’90s were and thought it would be fun to bring it back. Sometimes some of the most fun activities are the ones that take us back to our roots, and that is what we wanted to do here.”
Admission is $1 per person and includes unlimited slips down the slide. All proceeds benefit the Silverthorne Recreation Center Youth Scholarship Fund. For more information on this and other events planned to celebrate the 20th anniversary, call (970) 262-7370 or visit www.silverthorne.org.
