A group of young entrepreneurs will compete for the best tasting lemonade this Saturday, May 21 at the Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine in Portland. The Hannaford Lemonade Recipe Contest, which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., is part of the activities leading up to Lemonade Day Maine on June 5.
Lemonade Day is a fun, free, educational program that teaches kids how to start and run their own lemonade business. On the first Sunday in June, young entrepreneurs from all over Portland and nearby communities will set up lemonade stands and start making lemonade.
“Everyone will have a job on Lemonade Day – either selling or buying lemonade,” says Kate Krukowski Gooding, executive director of Lemonade Day Maine.
At Saturday’s contest, lemonade will be judged on taste, healthiness and overall presentation.
