Family Day at Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust’s Bridgeton Bus Garage features an award-winning swing band to support the appeal to buy the building, which the group currently rents.
On display will be 130 classic buses, trucks and fire engines – along with free vintage bus rides to and from George Square.
Graeme McQuaker, of the Trust's organising team, said: “Our third annual family day will be the biggest yet.
“We’re thrilled to have the Michael Brawley Big Band play within the garage. What a sound it will be.
“We offer a unique experience and as the Trust prepares to take outright ownership of the building, we want the community to discover more about our work and have fun while doing so.”
The family open day is on Sunday, August 4 from 11am-4pm. Enter by Broad Street.
As well as the vintage vehicles, there will be American cars on display and model bus exhibits.
Children’s activities will include Lego and Wee Bus treasure hunts and there are free cycle checks and bike building at Common Wheel's Dr Bike Station.
Funds raised – entry is £5 adults, £3 concessions and £12 families – will go towards the GVVT appeal to buy the garage.
Big band trumpet player Gary Mitchell visited the garage yesterday and said: “It’s a great place, and I would encourage folk to come along and see for themselves.
“The big band sound will be fantastic within the garage setting.
“We play solely to raise money for well-meaning and worthy causes and are really looking forward to entertaining the crowds.”
