Where Can I Set Up My Stand on Lemonade Day?
Kids can set up lemonade stands on Lemonade Day at home in their neighborhoods and in many of the local parks in the nine-county region (see below). There are also some “first come, first served” opportunities for stand locations, which we list on this page in the coming weeks.
In addition to these special opportunities, kids can ask permission to set up elsewhere if they have a high-traffic location in mind. But they MUST ask permission from the business owner or location manager to set up there.
Also, we secure a permit with the City of Indianapolis enabling kids to set up around the city (on the circle, etc.). The only condition is that you cannot block pedestrian traffic on the sidewalks and if you set up your stand in front of a store or shop, you should ask the store owner/manager’s permission (that is, if they are NOT on our list of locations below)
We are partnering with many local parks departments and they have graciously waived the special permits and fees that one typically needs to submit to sell anything in the park. So, if you’d like to set up your lemonade stand in one of these parks ON LEMONADE DAY ONLY, feel free to do so! You do not need to ask permission to bring your stand to these parks. However, do keep in mind that other kids may plan on setting up in one of these parks so, if that is a problem for you, be sure to have a Plan B! Also, we hope to add more locations to this list so if you don’t see your local park on the list, be sure to check back!
