BRYAN, Texas — Have you ever craved a nice tall glass of iced lemonade on a hot Texas day? Well crave no more! Lemonade Day is just around the corner, and Bryan-College Station wants local kiddos to participate in this fun and educational event that's sure to get the neighbors swarming for a glass. Lemonade Day encourages children to develop their business and character-building skills by hosting a lemonade stand in their community. 

While the event is held nationally August 20-23,  Bryan-College Station is hosting their Lemonade Day My Way event October 1-4. During this time, Lemonade Day leaders in Bryan-College Station want kids to host a lemonade stand either virtually or in-person; adjusting to the current health and safety guidelines given by local health officials and the CDC. 

Children can host their lemonade stand as a drive-thru, as a to-go order, or as a virtual store. Your child also don't have to wait until October to start their business! If they want to start their lemonade stand August 20-23 on the actual Lemonade Day, and then GROW their business until October 1-4, they could be eligible to receive a "More Than Just A Day Award". Other rewards will be given to participants who bring in the most profit over four days, those who had a great online marketing plan, and to those who put in a lot of prep-work into their business plan.
