A simple plan to make enough money to buy fireworks for the Fourth of July inspired a young Benton boy to promote his product as "the best lemonade in the world."
Wesley Browning, a fireworks enthusiast, decided to build a lemonade stand and sell the summer treat on the front lawn of his grandmother's house on East Sevier Street.
"Wesley loves Roman candles," said his mother, Danielle Browning. "The idea to build the stand was his."
She noted that Wesley said he needed $42 to buy the fireworks.
