Lexington Announces "Second Sunday" Events
By Alan Lytle
Lexington, KY – The city of Lexington says it plans to participate in the state-wide Second Sunday initiative, a day long event designed to improve the health of citizens while promoting family fun. On Sunday, October 12th, Limestone Street will be closed to traffic from 2 to 6 p-m
between the Avenue of Champions and Third Street. Lexington Mayor
Jim Newberry says families are encouraged take part in a variety of physical fitness activities.
Second Sunday has its roots in Bogot Colombia where the Parks Director was looking for a cheap way to get people active and engaged. It's been going strong for about 30 years. Details on Second Sunday in Lexington are available online at 2ndsundayinlex.com.
