It was a day full of lemonade and smiles for local kids.
 
The fifth annual Lemonade Stand Day, which took place in the capital region on Sunday (Aug.26), raised money for the Stollery Children's Hospital.
 
Deidre Collins, Keira Naundorf and Kayley Naundorf had their own booth set up in the Fort.
 
"We're giving back to the Stollery which makes me feel happy," said Kayley. "When I was two and seven I had something wrong with my eye so I had to go to the Stollery."
 
With an event touching close to home, sister Keira was in good spirits while selling the lemonade and snacks.
 
"I'm happy that I'm raising money for the Stollery since they helped my sister and they were just nice people." said Keira. "I'm happy to do this because it helps all the other kids who might need the Stollery's help."
 
As of Monday afternoon, this year's Lemonade Stand Day raised over $38,000 and counting. The money will go towards updating and renovating The Beach (a playroom for kids) at the Stollery Children's Hospital.
 
There was around 400 stands in the region.
