Lemonade stands set to pop up this Saturday, June 11th.
Lemonade stands are to be strewn about the this weekend, as part of a program to teach children about operating a business.
Shelly Wright, Executive Director of the Southeast Conference, spoke about the program while a recent guest on Capital Chat.
"The really fabulous thing about Lemonade Day is that it's free, it's fun, and the kids get to keep all the money they make. There's really no downside to having a lemonade stand on Lemonade Day. It's an event that encourages young children to be entrepreneurs. Each year gets a little bit better and a little bit bigger, and the kids have a great time.
She says last year there about 15 stands in Juneau and some years have seen around 30, depending on the weather. This year it has been moved from May to June.
Visit the Alaska Lemonade Day website to register and help kids learn how to start a real business for Lemonade Day.
Permits are not required this Saturday.
