Mayor Fischer wants record number for Labor Day Hike, Bike and Paddle

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says he wants a record number of people to come out for the Labor Day Hike, Bike and Paddle.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the fitness event, which also happens on Memorial Day.

Fischer says this year's event will include several different options for Ohio River paddlers.

Participants will be able to take either a three or six mile course to Cox Park, or try out a more adventurous course that will go all the way to New Albany.

Fischer says that this year, the cycling event will focus on the West End, heading through the city to Shawnee Park. "The route is going to take cyclists through the emerging Portland stroll district on the way to Shawnee Park so people will be able to get a better idea of the development that's going on in Portland right now, and of course the stroll district," Mayor Fischer said.

Mayor Fischer also announced plans for the four-day World Fest, which will also be held over Labor Day weekend.
