Shawnta Swindell didn't want to miss the United Services Automobile Association's annual Innovation Day. Her employer hosts these daylong celebrations of employee-driven innovation projects at all their financial service centers.

The World Heritage Festival takes place this week from Wednesday, Sept. 6 to Sunday, Sept. 10. 

Colleen Swain, director of the City of San Antonio's World Heritage Office, says the festival connects the five Missions and celebrates their World Heritage designation, which recognizes the importance of the landmarks on a world stage.

"We are the one and only World Heritage site in the state of Texas. There's only 23 in the United States," she says.
