The Button Band at Central Catholic High School is hosting its first ever Winter Fest to bring the community together for music, food and a holiday celebration.

It has taken the band weeks of intense training to prepare.

"Playing and marching and calisthenics, preparing our bodies," Danny Solis, the school's fine arts director, said.

The band's sound has set a new standard. They were recently named the newest champions of the TAPPS state marching band contest. They've also been selected as one of three bands to play the Battle of Flowers Band Festival in April.

"We definitely want to inspire some sort of love for music," Nathaniel Reta, a member of the 52-member band, said.

"We've been making a huge push for the arts here and it's finally something that we're proud to stand on," added Jalen Tays, another band member.

The Winter Fest will be held this Saturday from 2 PM to 5 PM, weather permitting, at Central Catholic High School's Alumni Pavillion. It is free and open to the public.
