LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

It's fast becoming a national phenomenon, and it's coming to Lubbock this year. It's called Lemonade Day.

Kids are encouraged to set up a lemonade stand to learn the value of hard work, customer service and good planning.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 Vice President and General Manager Dan Jackson was at Murfee Elementary School.

He was not only pitching the idea, but giving kids a few pointers on how to do it.

"How much do you need to charge, to make more than you spend at the grocery store? Okay. so we gotta do that. We gotta plan," Jackson advised. "Now, you also have to decide if you need to get an investor. are mom and dad going to buy your lemonade for you?"

Not all cities have Lemonade Day on the same day.

Here in Lubbock it's May 5th.
