San Francisco police shut down kids' lemonade stand
While shutting down dozens of Mexican ice cream vendors during Sunday's San Francisco Symphony concert in Dolores Park, police also put an end to a successful lemonade stand that kids were running.
The kids were doing a brisk business selling brownies and lemonade at their stand in Dolores Park during the San Francisco Symphony concert last weekend.
Robert Brust snapped the photo
that showed the disappointed kids being told by a policeman that they could no longer sell their food and drink.
Brust told SFWeekly
: "They had been selling briskly. The brownie pan was two-thirds empty."
San Francisco Police spokesman Sergeant Troy Dangerfield said the city municipal code requires all foodsellers to obtain city permits because of health concerns.
"How can you tell the ice cream carts to leave and then let some people sell other things? Just because they're kids they shouldn't get a free pass, you know?" Dangerfield said.
