Lemonade Day 2018: When life hands you lemons, make money from them!

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Being an entrepreneur is less of a job title and more of a mindset.

"It's never too early to encourage our children to begin thinking about entrepreneurship and Lemonade Day is the perfect opportunity to do just that," said Gov. John Bel Edwards.

On Saturday, May 5, you could potentially see dozens of lemonade stands while you're out and about. That's because the governor issued a proclamation declaring the day as "National Lemonade Day" in Louisiana.

"These are our future business owners and job creators, and we should do all that we can to give them a great start," he said.

This tradition started eight years ago when it was introduced by entrepreneurs John Georges and Todd Graves.

This year, LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron got in on the action with a pre-Lemonade Day party at the Governor's Mansion. That happened on Friday, May 4.

The "lemonaders" who participated in the event are from the Big Buddy program. They got to perfect their recipe with the experts.
