Once the temps rise, lemonade pours

BLUEFIELD - A 75-year tradition is poised to take off in Mercer County once the temperatures soar.

The Bluefield Lemonade Days are ready to go once we get that first 90 degree day in the Mountain State.

Locals say they're excited and organizers are waiting for that official reading of 90-plus.

You can find the lemonade served at Chicory Square and Cole Harley Davidson in Bluefield, W. Va., as well as Graham Square and Food City in Bluefield, Va.

Last year the city saw just two days above 90, but the record is 18 days.

“I was a little scared last week. I think next Tuesday is supposed to look pretty hot,” says Lemonade Day organizer Chris Catron, “You know it doesn't bother me, the more the merrier. If we can set a record, great, if we have two, great. We're going to make it the best we can make it.”

When we finally get that first 90 degree day the lemonade lassies will pour from a five-gallon jug until it's gone, so get it while it's cold.
