Did You Know Lemonade Stands Are Illegal in Iowa? Lawmakers Are Trying to Change That
Many parents of young children have helped them set up a lemonade stand in the summer. But believe it or not, those innocent roadside stands are actually still illegal in Iowa.
Fortunately for your little entrepreneurs in training, Iowa lawmakers are trying to legalize the warm-weather tradition, reports KCRG Des Moines.
Lemonade stands in Coralville during RAGBRAI were shut down because the kids running them did not have the permits or health inspections required for sales during the event.
A bill currently moving through the Iowa legislature would ensure lemonade stands are able to run without having to obtain a business or food permit (what you're technically supposed to do now).
Here's hoping the law is passed by the summer.
