Museum of Bus Transportation’s Spring Fling is June 3

HERSHEY, Pa. — The Museum of Bus Transportation’s 2017 Spring Fling will be held Saturday, June 3.

During the annual “Homecoming of the Bus Industry,” the museum opens its fleet for viewing and pictures, not only at the museum location but also at its private annex.

That means the entire fleet of vintage buses owned by the museum will be on display, along with multiple vendors selling all types of bus memorabilia. There also will be food for purchase during the event.

“This is a great day to spend with others who have an interest in the history of Bus Transportation,” said Mark Szyperski, vice chairman of the museum board of directors.  “Our entire operation is run by volunteers who work all year improving this annual event.”

Several Spring Fling attendees bring their own vintage buses to display.

“One year, we had a Model 5, Model 10 and Model 15 Eagle all on display,” said Szyperski, who also chairs the museum board’s marketing committee. “We are never sure who may show up, but it is always an impressive sight to see the visiting buses on display.”

This year the museum will present two awards: the “People’s Choice” award, based on viewer votes, and the “Long Distance Award” for the privately owned display bus that travels the farthest to the event.

In addition, this year there will be a “Parade of Buses” around the campus property, allowing visitors opportunities to take photos and videos of the historic buses.

Entry to Spring Fling is free for museum members and $7 for non-members, which includes entry into the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum.
