Kids’ Lemonade Stand Shut Down, Fined $500 At U.S. Open

According to WUSA in Maryland, one parent said the kids were denied “the American dream” after officials shut down their lemonade stand outside the U.S. Open and fined the group $500 for not having a permit. To make matters worse, the stand was set up to raise money for a cancer charity, while several neighboring houses with permits were cleaning up after charging cars up to $60 per day to park for the event.
