Lemonade Day achieves record success

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock is wrapped up Lemonade day and is now celebrating its success.

While the total result numbers are still rolling in, it's looking like this year was even better than the last. More young entrepreneurs set up young businesses around town than ever before.

The kids were invited to a "Sun n' Fun" pool party to celebrate their achievements from this year's Lemonade Day. 

Spokeswoman Cathy Landtroop said, "To hear these kids tell their story and they all were successful, and that wouldn't happen if Lubbock didn't step up and probably spend more money on lemonade than they should that day."

Students also competed for Lemonade Day scholarships, including $500 and $1,000 to Texas Tech University by doing on-camera interviews and sharing their "lemons to gold" stories.
