LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Saturday, May 5 is Lemonade Day 2018. Thousands of kids are expected to be selling lemonade all over Lubbock.

For months, kids have been planning to set up shop and sell ice cold glasses of lemonade, learning to how to run a business.

President of United Supermarkets and member of organization team for Lemonade Day, Robert Taylor, thinks this is the best time to do just that.

"It's just a way to get young people exposed to and involved in the idea of free enterprise," Taylor said. "The idea if you make some money you have the responsibility."

Lemonade Day is designed to teach kids real life lessons about business by creating a budget, selecting a location, and so much more.

"It's going to cost some money to set the business up and they've got to share some of it by paying a tax," Taylor said. "They have to pay $1 to the city for a health permit and there's all these expenses that go in to putting a business together, but it does your heart good to know that kids understand."

Thirsty adults are encouraged to get out Saturday and support these kids and their work.

"These kids put a lot of work in and a lot of planning," he said. "They've done a lot of things to make their stand better than the next and the last thing you want these kids to do is to do all this and not have a good experience, so it's not really expensive and it's good lemonade."

So far over 3,000 kids have signed up for Lemonade Day. Organizers hope you will go out and buy at least three glasses to support these kids on Saturday.
