BETHESDA, Md (WUSA) You can make a fortune selling parking spots outside the US Open, but don’t even dream of setting up a lemonade stand.
A county inspector ordered the Marriott and Augustine kids to shut down the stand they set up on Persimmon Tree Rd, right next to Congressional. And after they allegedly ignored a couple of warnings, the inspector fined their parents $500.
“This gentleman from the county is now telling us because we don’t have a vendors license, the kids won’t be allowed to sell their lemonade,” Carrie Marriott told us, her voice trembling.
The kids can’t seem to understand it. “I don’t agree, I think the county is wrong.” “We’re sending the money to charity.”
