Thirsty parade goers won't have to go far to find a cool drink of lemonade for the Little Britches Parade Saturday, May 19 in High River.

Tate Barton will be back with his lemonade stand again, looking to raise money for the High River Hospital's Cancer Care Centre.

His Dad Jamie Barton, says Tate was always taught by his mom to "give back."

"I remember my wife Jill telling us that that was one of the things we had to do, was give back. And we didn't know what shape or form it was going to come in. And we decided to do this and we just jumped on the bandwagon and decided to make it work."

Tate's mom Jill passed away a few years ago from cancer, which is what prompted Tate to start his lemonade stand and give the money to the Cancer Care Centre.

To date, Tate has raised over $33,000.

Tate's lemonade stand will be at his usual spot by Schmidty's Barber Shop and then move into George Lane Park following the parade.

Lemonade is $1 a glass.
