Cherry Creek North sidewalk sale features kids Lemonade stands

The much-anticipated Cherry Creek North Sidewalk Sale returns later this month on July 21 – 24, 2011, where nearly 70 merchants participate in this annual tradition that provides some of the year’s best values. In addition to being the hottest spot in town for the best deals, there is a new twist this year. On Saturday, July 23, Cherry Creek North will become an extension of the popular “Lemonade Day,” and the streets will be filled with dozens of young entrepreneurs running their own lemonade stands.

There are a limited number of spaces left for kids that still want to participate in this fun event and run their own small business in Cherry Creek North for a day. Applications are online at www.cherrycreeknorth.com.
