Longboard Contest to Take Over Cleveland Street Friday

The Snow Man Slide Jam longboard competition is set from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28 near Cleveland Street and Osceola Avenue in downtown Clearwater.

A downhill longboarding competition is set to takeover part of Cleveland Street Friday.

More than 100 contestants plan to be part of the Snow Man Slide Jam longboard contest from noon to 6 p.m. near Cleveland Street and Osceola Avenue, according to the event's Facebook page.

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.
