    It's Easter weekend and if you're not headed out of town you're likely the destination -- if so, you may need an idea for how to entertain your weekend guests.  That's where this weekend's Worth the Drive comes in with an last-minute assit.

      This Sunday, Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie is celebrating Easter weekend with a 16th century church service from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer at 12:30 p.m.  On both Saturday and Sunday, kids can also have an Easter egg hunt where stamps will be six stamps will need to be collected to earn a free ice cream cup.
     
    In addition, normal Ren-Faire attractions will be in full force, including giant roasted turkey legs, stage shows, rides, games and other attractions -- and more people dressed in period clothing than you thought you'd ever seen.
     
    It's important to note that while you don't have to dress in 16th century garb to attend any of the events it sure does help you get into the feel of stepping into the past.
     
    Weekend passes to the past are $32 for adults.  One-day tickets are $22. On Sunday, up to three Children (12 & under) will be admitted free with a paid adult ticket.  One-day tickets for kids are normally $9.  Group discounts are available.  See ticket info here.
