Young entrepreneurs taking part in Lemonade Day

DETROIT (AP) - Thousands of young entrepreneurs will open lemonade stands this weekend in southeastern Michigan.

Organizers say Lemonade Day, which comes to the Detroit area on Saturday, is expected to involve more than 50,000 children between 3 and 18. It aims to teach children to operate their own businesses through the real-world experience of a lemonade stand.

The Houston-based program has been sponsored nationally by Google Inc. and locally by Huntington Bank since 2011, when it launched in Detroit.
