July 4th @ Freedom Fest

Museum staff with Kohl's Cares volunteers, and the Desert Cruisers Car Club worked side by side to entertain the families that attended this year's Freedom Fest on the IVC campus. 100 kids enthusiastically recounted the results of the watermelon contests at the Desert Cruisers booth while they attempted making coiled pots. We saw some kids and parents we've seen at past fairs and some new ones who stayed for hours perfecting their art.

Hosted by KXO radio, the event "began in 1991, the year the Gulf War ended and has become
Imperial County’s largest single day event with over 65,000 people on the Imperial
Valley College campus grounds and many more witnessing and listening to this event
from their homes, roadsides and on canal banks around the valley." 

Gloria from KXO made sure everything went smoothly and we thank her and Ralph from Desert Cruisers for being so helpful and welcoming to the Desert Museum staff during their first year the Fest.
