The band program and band booster club hosted the "Seguin Marching Festival" on September 25th. After a one year hiatus due to Covid, the festival was a great success bringing approximately 2,500 participants and spectators to Matador stadium throughout the day. The Matador Band performed an exciting exhibition performance to close out the evening. The top three competing guest bands earning awards were: Warren H.S., Judson H.S., and Steele H.S.
