NEBRASKA CITY – Tiger Weaver and Mylie Lane both thought having a lemonade stand contest be a part of Lemon Days in Nebraska City was “cool,” especially since they both took home the top prize for the best tasting lemonade on Saturday.
The first ever lemonade stand contest included 12 different stands, featuring different flavors of lemonade, lemon-flavored treats and a chance for children to add to their piggy banks.
Weaver says making their lemonade stand, which included boards painted in two coats of yellow, gradient scripted writing and a chalk board, didn’t take long at all.
“The painting took a little long, because we had to wait for the paint to dry before adding a second coat. Then finally adding the lettering.”
Their lemonade didn’t contain any secret ingredients, but they did add lavender syrup. Weaver and Lane also sold lemon bars and lemon muffins.
Faulyn Stroble took home the most creative stand prize, the best lemon snack went to Lorelei Walters, and the Callen and Walker family won the People’s Choice Award.
