LEGO® Friends and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation are collaborating to build the world’s largest lemonade stand made entirely of LEGO® bricks. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation will serve lemonade from the stand on Saturday. 

The Lemonade Stand will be completed in time to serve lemonade on Saturday. The event is free of charge, but donations are encouraged.
