Two Orana Heights students who held a lemonade stand at Elston Park on Wednesday sold out, proving age doesn't compete with determination when it comes to achieving goals or making money.
The decision to sell fresh $2 cups of lemonade at the park was a light bulb moment for friends Dakota Watson and Harper Walker who weren't willing to take no for an answer when they excitedly asked their parents if they could do it.
"Me and Harper thought it would be a good idea," Dakota said.
"On halloween we had made a stand at home and it was fun, so we wanted to do it again."
Dakota's mother Rene Watson said after the success of their first stand, having sold all of their lemonade, the girls will be holding another stand on January 18, but this time they will also have Orange juice added onto their list.
Dakota said she can't wait to hold another one as the first one was a 'relaxing' experience.
"It was fun selling and making the lemonade," Harper said.
"We are going to be doing it again soon," she said.
"Yes, we are doing it again next Sunday," Harper said.
The stand was held outside where social distancing was applicable, and the duo used brand new disposable cups and straws as well as a large enclosed drink dispenser to distribute the goods.
