More than 20,000 youth in the state are expected to participate in the sixth annual Lemonade Day, designed to teach entrepreneurship and character development among Louisiana’s youth ages 4 to 18.

Young entrepreneurs were provided with a free backpack, which contained detailed materials to help them establish their lemonade stand. They are advised to spend a little, save a little and share a little by donating a portion of their sales to a local charity.

Gov. John Bel Edwards proclaimed Saturday as National Lemonade Day in the state.
