Festival was first held in 2007. Lisa, daughter of American Michael Holthouse asked to buy a turtle. There were a lot of animals at home, so father refused her. Lisa decided to sell lemonade to earn money for a new pet.
Michael supported daughter’s idea by proposing the creation of National Lemonade Day and giving children opportunity to earn money. According to the American, this will help teach the child financial literacy, responsibility, independence. On the first Sunday in May, children sell delicious homemade drinks on the streets, and passers-by are happy to buy it.
