Lemonade stands will dot the area Saturday for the annual Lemonade Day Louisiana.

Todd Graves, CEO of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, and John Georges, CEO of Georges Enterprises and owner of The Advocate, launched the state’s version of the national program in 2010. It teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business — a lemonade stand — as a way of preparing them to become productive adults in the future.

Among the celebrations will be a family-oriented event at Americana in Zachary 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The lemonade stands open there at 11:30 a.m., and YelpBR will host pet adoptions 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. From 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., the 3 Piece White band will perform.

Food trucks and inflatables will be on the grounds all day as well as one of the General Lees, the classic car used in “The Dukes of Hazzard” television show, which starred John Schneider as Bo Duke.

Schneider, also a country singer, will give a free concert 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. to close out the day.
