LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Temperatures reached more than 90 Memorial Day, but that didn't stop hundreds of people from showing up at the Mayor's annual Hike, Bike and Paddle event at Waterfront Park.

People of all ages came to exercise at the annual event.

“It’s been pretty nice outside,” 11-year-old Al Burk said. “It’s not hot yet.”

The temperature rose to 92 degrees in Louisville and the city offered free bottled water to people participating in the many activities like yoga, Zumba and Tai Chi.

Grand Master Mingye Ding moved from China to teach Tai Chi in Louisville. Tai Chi is a form of martial arts that Mayor Greg Fischer practiced Memorial Day morning.

“I got the Tai Chi in, I got the yoga in, getting ready to cycle,” Mayor Fischer said. “I’m feeling pretty loose right now.”
