OCOTILLO — Imperial Valley Desert Museum held its first Ocotillo Water Days event on Saturday, offering guests an opportunity to play in the water, cool off, grab a bite to eat and take in some live music.

The public even began at 10 a.m. and lasted until 4 p.m. Parents were able to take their children around to different water stations on the grounds, and throughout the event, the fire department cooled children by showering them with water.
