Dozens of lemonade stands will be set up around Indiana Saturday.

Young entrepreneurs will be looking for thirsty customers around Indiana tomorrow. Participants of Lemonade Day are part of a learning program that teaches children how to start their own business as well as fundamental lessons about life and success.

Kids must first seek out an investor to start their lemonade business. Lemonade Day Executive Director Jami Marsh says kids are also encouraged to share the wealth.

“We also teach kids to spend, save and share their Lemonade Day profits and so there are some learning in there about philosophy as well,” she says.

Lemonade Day began in Houston, Texas in 2007. It has grown from 2,700participating kids to 120,000 in 31 cities across the United States and Canada. Kids will set up their lemonade stands this weekend in Indianapolis, Terre Haute, Bloomington, and Martinsville, among other locations.
