Duluth, MN ( This summer, a select few will be literally dropping in on Duluth's annual Sidewalk Sales.

Duluth's Greater Downtown Council is hosting, this July, a nine-story repel down the Sellwood Building. The event will help raise funds for retail development in the downtown District, using an out-the-box idea, getting participants out of their comfort zone.

The company 'Over the Edge' will be assisting people down the building, a process they say is safe and fun for everyone.

"I would encourage anybody to come out here and try it," said Brian Hughes, North Central Manger with Over the Edge. "If you have any hesitation it's a great way to step out of your comfort zone and have a good time."
