Saturday will see the second vintage bus rally on Walmer Green organised by Friends of the East Kent Road Car Company (FOTEK).
Last year’s inaugural East Kent 100 show marked the centenary of the company and it was so popular the group decided to repeat the experience.
Alwyn Conway, FOTEK secretary, said: “There is a disappointment in the vintage bus enthusiasts’ fraternity because the very popular Herne Bay Bus Rally has not happened this year due to outside influences."
He added: “We felt it a duty then to hold our event for the benefit of those who would have sorely missed the Herne Bay bus day.”
The rally, between 10am and 4pm, has more than 30 single and double deck buses on display, a variety of bus related sales stands, a tea and coffee stall as well as the obligatory ice cream van.
There will also be a free shuttle service between South Street at Deal and the event site and buses giving free bus rides around the area.
The East Kent 100 is one of only a few such bus events in the South East.
The County Showground hosted the M&D and East Kent Bus Club’s annual South East Bus Festival at the beginning of April, and there is the New Romney Vintage Bus and Taxi event at New Romney Railway Station on Sunday.
