Montgomery County, MD -- A kids' lemonade stand that was shut down and fined $500 last week, was allowed to re-open.
An inspector in Montgomery County, MD fined the stand as he enforced rules to prevent vendors from turning upscale neighborhoods around the US Open into a shopping bazaar.
The kids were trying to raise money for justtryanit.com, an organization raising money to battle pediatric cancer.
The kids were allowed to re-open their stand, in a new location. They moved off the corner, where there were concerns about traffic and safety. In exchange, the county waived the $500 fine.
Customers who found the stand were happy to cough up $2 a drink. The county still maintains the stand is a non-permitted concessionaire.
