(WBNG Binghamton) The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center is planning a huge event for downtown Waverly on Sunday, August 11th, from 10am to 7pm, dubbed "Waverly's Attic."

According to a news release:

The event will take place on Broad Street between Waverly St. and Penna Ave and also include Park Avenue between SRAC and the Red Door Thrift Store.

The event includes many activities such as live music, sidewalk sales by local stores, a chicken barbeque by the Railhouse Restaurant, a dunking booth supplied by the American Legion and manned by Waverly teachers, a Chinese auction filled with items donated by local businesses, many craft and food vendors, a tour of the former Waverly Village Hall, and from noon to 6pm, a huge auction of antiques, collectibles items, and household goods that have been donated to SRAC to raise funds for the coming year.

SRAC's Deb Twigg explains, "It is a coming together of many people and businesses to celebrate the continued revitalization of downtown Waverly while supporting our local museum, SRAC. We have alot of items for the auction, but anyone who wants to donate items can still do so by contacting SRAC at 607-565-7960 to arrange a pick up or they can simply drop it off."
