Kids to sell lemonade at the Indiana Statehouse

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Thousands of young entrepreneurs will open lemonade stands this weekend in Indianapolis.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and inventor Scott Jones will kick off Lemonade Day Friday morning at 10:30 by helping children sell the beverage on the south lawn of the Statehouse. All proceeds will benefit charities of the children's choosing.

More than 15,000 young people from pre-school age through high school will open lemonade stands across the greater Indianapolis area Saturday. Indianapolis is one of nearly 40 cities nationwide participating in the educational initiative dedicated to teaching children how to start and operate their own lemonade stand businesses.


  • at last
    I found one place where I trust the gov to run a lemonade stand. I believe that the gov will not lie, hide informatation or screw up the books.
  • And the Health Department IS NOT SHUTTING THEM DOWN?
    This is so contrary to the reason news where every Kids stand is be shut down. I hope the national median picks this up.
