These shows repeat at the same time Sunday.

There will also be additional entertainment and art demonstrations at Stage II and the theater wing both days.

Diana's dresses go home

The gowns Princess Diana put up for auction in 1997 will be displayed in a new exhibition at Kensington Palace, where she once lived.

The 14 dresses - including a blue evening gown she wore to a gala at the White House where she danced with John Travolta - were sold in a 1997 auction that raised $3.26 million for AIDS and cancer charities, two months before the princess died in a Paris car crash.

Maureen Rorech-Dunkel bought the gowns, which have been shown around the world, including a six-month exhibition at Kensington Palace in 1999 and 2000.

The dresses, mostly by British designers, will be displayed permanently in the palace's state apartments starting in February.

Window on fashion

The Windward Mall Teen Board will do informal modeling of aloha wear at Sears, Wildflowers, Jeans Warehouse and Local Motion, including mannequin modeling in store windows, at 1 p.m. Saturday.
