Cavs fans poured into the Gateway Plaza to kick off the start of the playoffs!

Fans with or without a ticket could attend the event on the Gateway Plaza along East 6th Street.

Some of the activities included, face painting, 3-on-3 basketball games, skills and drills, live music, and eating food from some of Cleveland Food Trucks. 

John Rivera said he's been a sports fan for most of his life. Last year during the playoffs he started carrying a 12 foot tall sign to every game. 

“I try to make a different sign for every game,” said Rivera.

Today Rivera’s sign showed Indians and Cavs pride with a message that read,” The Road to Repeat Goes thru Cleveland. Thank you Indians for an incredible 2016 Season." 

Rivera believes that this year the Cavaliers will see a repeat.  

“I’d love to have a repeat. I’m feeling good, I’m really feeling good! They got a lot of talent, they got to bring it together, but they got a lot of talent and they got Lebron James, and that means a lot,” said Rivera.
