Several hundred people gathered at the round theater at La Villita this weekend to see guitars of all shapes and sizes. But many attendees were doing more than just looking.

Witness a new Day of the Dead event at La Villita. Listen to a symphony reimagine the Beatles. And then watch a youth arts group team up with members of a chamber orchestra. The weekend is here, and there’s much to do!

San Antonio World Heritage Office director Colleen Swain, Pharm Table chef Elizabeth Johnson, Texas poet laureate Carmen Tafolla, and the Express-News' Paul Stephen speak on "The Source."
