The Liberty Bridge Jump Off was held July 19 on Main Street in front of Falls Park. The event, presented by the American Track League with Fleet Feet Sports and Greenville Track Club, featured eight female pole vaulters and eight male long jumpers, including Greenville native and Olympic silver medalist Sandi Morris. The Jump Off’s outfitted stadium on Main Street offered spectators unique, up-close views that are not available during standard track-and-field events.

Following the contests, there was a street party with a live DJ, food and beer for sale, local vendors, and other entertainment.
