Comments: The World Heritage Festival September 5th through 9th, 2018 is an annual collaborative event to celebrate and promote our San Antonio Missions, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, and raise funds to preserve, maintain, promote and connect. The AVA walk on September 8th will be held in conjunction with a bike tour (7, 14 and 22 miles) and run. Walkers are encouraged to start at around 8:15am and finish by 12:30pm, in order not to miss out on some of the festivals feature. The run will not be held on the same route as the walkers.
