The Museum of Bus Transportation in Hershey, Pennsylvania, will hold its annual Spring Fling, and for those in the bus industry, the chocolate won’t be the sweetest thing in town.

Held in the home of Hershey chocolates, the Spring Fling will display the museum’s restored and donated fleet that ranges the span of the 20th century for all participants to see.

Museum Special Advisor David Millhouser said the buses are donated and are often in outstanding shape.

“When they do need restoration we seek folks who will donate the work, but occasionally have to pay for it,” he said, adding that “we hope at Spring Fling that a number of visiting buses will attend and there will be yellow buses among them.”

Last year, a Crown school bus was on display during Spring Fling; however, according to Marketing Committee Chair Mark L. Szyperski, there are no guarantees on the buses that will be in attendance at this year’s event.

Szyperski added that the museum expects a great showing of school buses, including several additional antique school buses that were seen at the show last year.

For those looking to add exclusive pieces to their collections, the show will also have memorabilia pieces on sale from an array of bus aficionados.

The Spring Fling will be held at the Museum of Bus Transportation June 2-3.
