Cliff Diving World Series Headed To Boston, Contestants to Jump Off Contemporary Art Building

The Cliff Diving World Series is getting a change of scenery.

The event will be making its sixth stop of the series in Boston, where contestants will be leaping off the top of the Institue of Contemporary Art into the harbor 80 feet below.

It will be the first time the series makes its way to the East Coast, and the panel of five judges will include two-time Olympic Gold medalist Greg Louganis.

"We are very excited to host the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series at the ICA," said Paul Bessire, deputy director for external relations at the ICA. "The ICA's innovative architecture and exhibitions and its location on Boston's stunning waterfront make it the perfect spot for this international event."

The tour will make stops in Mexico, France, Italy and Greece before heading to Boston on Aug. 20.
