Young girls from all over the Mississippi Gulf Coast will fill the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center in Gulfport this weekend to attend the second annual American Girl Fashion Show.
Girls of various ages will model historical clothing that is reflective of how the dolls dress in their individual stories.
American Girl Dolls and their sagas are inspired by history and chronicle different eras in America's past, going back hundreds of years and continuing with contemporary dolls that explore 21st century issues.
Multiple shows will be held throughout the upcoming weekend, beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16. Two shows will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and the event will conclude on Sunday with shows at noon and 4 p.m.
Proceeds from the show will go towards exhibits and programming for both the museum and WINGS Performing Arts Center.
