By royal decree, it’s time once again for the Texas Renaissance Festival, which is entering its 43rd year. The extravaganza’s opening weekend is a journey back to old Bavaria with the best of the “wurst” and beer. The King and Queen will greet guests at the front gate at 8:45 a.m. before firing the village cannon to open the day’s festivities; each evening will close with Royal Fireworks. “We have traditionally opened with an Oktoberfest-themed weekend because it is a traditional European event which people love and also is part of this area’s German heritage,” says RenFest spokesman Travis Bryant. Besides the ever-popular turkey legs, events suited to the theme include polka dancing, costume contests and a Bratwurst-eating competition. Huzzah!

9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday and October 1. 21778 FM 1774. For information, visit texrenfest.com. Free to $30.
