The Scrap Exchange invites you to party under the sea and help them celebrate 20 years of creative reuse! The Scrap Exchange will host Scrap a Go-Go Under the Sea, a semi-formal dance party on July 30th at the Trotter Building in Durham. The under-the-sea themed party will feature local ’70s cover band sensation The Wusses as well as several DJs spinning vintage tunes. Scrap a Go-Go is an all-ages event lasting from 6:30 pm-1:00 am. There will be activities to delight young and old including a free Make-n-Take area of Scrap Exchange materials, an ocean-themed photo booth, a food truck rodeo, beer, games and outrageous costumes.
Families with young children should plan to arrive early. Children's activities, including a make-and-take table and carnival games, will be scheduled from 6:30-9:00 pm. A silent auction will feature a wide variety of goods and services from local businesses. After 9 pm all attention turns to the dance floor. DJs will spin music throughout the evening leading up to the appearance of The Wusses, a Durham-based 70s cover band, who will take the stage around 10 pm.
Retro and event-themed semi-formal costuming is encouraged! Special prizes will be awarded for the best theme-related costumes and the best examples of creative reuse costuming.
Tickets are available for purchase beginning July 5 at The Scrap Exchange creative reuse center located at 923 Franklin Street in Durham, or online at http://scrapexchange.eventbrite.com/. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children under 15.
Scrap a Go-Go Under the Sea is sponsored in part by Pabst Blue Ribbon, Burt's Bees and Vaguely Reminiscent. Proceeds from Scrap a Go-Go will benefit The Scrap Exchange to help recover revenue lost and expenses incurred in the aftermath of the roof collapse at Liberty Warehouse.
