COLUMBIA - Homemade artifacts, sweet treats, and books and more were for sale Saturday morning during the Battle High Booster's Spring Bazaar.

Kim Foley, a band director, said the bazaar had the biggest vendor turnout its ever had.

"This is an annual fundraiser that we put on for the Battle High School Band. This year we actually have the most vendors we have had in the three or four years that we have done this. This year we have 62 vendors," Foley said.

Those who attended the event were required to pay a $2 entry fee. The fee helps fund band activities.

"Special custom designs for our shows, we pay for food because we like to feed our kids on trips, extra staffing, anything that is helping kids and keeping them the center of the attention," Foley said.

Cassidy Schulte, a band member, said students in the band appreciate events like this.

"We don't really get a lot of funding. Like football, they get a lot of funding," she said.

Shulte said she feels the band is like a family.

"The environment, you make a certain group of friends within it and it's fun overall and helps with maturity," Schulte said.
