Get ready for Girl Scouts to rock the Mall on Saturday.

As many as 200,000 scouts are expected to sing, dance and generally show off their badge-earning pride during a day-long celebration marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scouts of America by Juliette Gordon Low.

The 100th anniversary festival gets underway at 9 a.m. at the Mall’s Sylvan Stage (close to 15th Street) with yoga demonstrations, singalongs and a Girl Scout uniform fashion show. At 11 a.m., the action moves to the main stage (closer to 17th Street and the Tidal Basin), with performers including Thia Megia, Manika, SAVVY and Dana Marie, the scout who won the Girl Scout’s song-writing contest. Saturday will also be a great time to check out the new wax figure of Low at Madame Tussauds in Washington.
