Join us at Scrap a Go-Go Under the Sea on Saturday, July 30

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 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.
