Lads and lassies! Time to go back to the Renaissance!

Spring is in the air, which also means the Scarborough Renaissance Festival is back. This is the 37th season of the cosplay-and-fantasy camp for kids, adults, kiddy-adults and anyone who likes to wander around a Medieval village with a turkey leg and craft beer, saying “prithee” and “milord” like a feudal serf. Each weekend has a special theme and unique events, so it’s always different. The faire is a colorful and fun walk around a 16th century village with vendors, performances, music and more. You can even see a joust! Huzzah!

DEETS: Scarborough Faire Grounds,
FM 66 in Waxahachie off I-35E, Exit 399B.

Turtle Creek Association opens up for luxury home tour

The Turtle Creek Association loves to open doors in the gayborhood — especially when it has so much to show off. The 16th annual Luxury Homes Tour features three high-rise apartments and two single-family dwellings in the historic area where visitors are welcome to look at some of the designer showcases you’ve walked by but never seen up close. Money raised from the event helps the nonprofit in its restoration and preservation efforts. The tour culminates with a separately-ticketed post-tour reception with bites and drinks from chef Abraham Salum.

DEETS: Event starts at 1 p.m. in Oak Lawn area.
