Brendan's Lemonade Stand in Saratoga Returns

8-year-old Brendan Mulvaney's Ballston Spa lemonade stand will reopen on Tuesday, located just outside of the Saratoga County Fair on Fairground Avenue.

In July of last year, a New York Department of Health employee shut down the boy's lemonade stand. Mulvaney was selling lemonade across from the entrance to the county fair in Ballston Spa. His family says a woman wearing a Department of Health shirt told the boy he couldn't keep the stand open without a permit. The Department of Health confirmed that one of its inspectors closed the stand down after four fair vendors complained.

New York Senator Jim Tedisco championed Brendan's Lemon-Aid Law, which would would exempt children under adult supervision for needed a permit in the 2019 legislative session, however it never made it past committee.

Brendan's father, Sean Mulvaney spoke with Chuck and Kelly on Monday and says they're not expecting any trouble this year.

Half of all proceeds are being donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, their mission as stated on the website says, "Our mission is to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer."

In addition to water and lemonade, Brendan will also be selling pink lemonade - all for $1.
