A downhill longboarding competition is set to takeover part of Cleveland Street Friday.
Cleveland Street from Osceola Avenue to the waterfront will be closed for the competition which features different downhill events including an obstacle course and slalom.
Nearly 100 longboarders took to the street to celebrate "Go Longboard Day" in July, prompting a police response. The event was not permitted by the city and the street was open creating a safety hazard as participants skated while cars drove to Winter's Dolphin Tale Adventure at the Harborview Center.
