Lexington puts on Sedentary Parade after being voted least active city

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The mayor sat on a motorized couch, his feet up on a coffee table, as the Sedentary Parade did little of anything in Lexington.

The event on Sunday in Kentucky spoofed Men's Health magazine's choosing of Lexington as the nation's least active city. The March Madness Marching Band had some musicians decked out in pajama pants and members pretended to fall asleep on a downtown street.

Residents were invited to watch - from lawn chairs.

After the parade ended, however, the action began, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. There were demonstrations of soccer, yoga and dance, at an event to promote healthy living.

Mayor Jim Gray isn't sure his city is the least active, but concedes it isn't healthiest either.
