RCMP Musical Ride performance dates set

Shows scheduled during Brigade Days on Sept.6 and 7

The showtimes for the RCMP Musical Ride have been set.

One performance will take place on Sept. 6 prior to the Brigade Days fireworks, while the other is scheduled following the parade on Sept. 7. Both shows will take place at the Sixth Avenue Sports Bowl.

“Brigade Days is about celebrating Hope,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “I felt we could incorporate the history of the RCMP within the community and help celebrate with the community.”

The Musical Ride is performed by 32 riders and horses, plus the member in charge. The show consists of a variety of intricate figures and cavalry drills choreographed to music. Nearby stables will be open throughout the weekend for people to meet the horses and riders. Some of the riders will also participate in the Brigade Days parade.

The Hope/Boston Bar RCMP is also hosting a Regimental Ball on Sept. 7. The formal dinner and dance will feature keynote speakers, as well as a raffle draw with proceeds going to Cops for Cancer. Live music will be provided by The Hoodlums.

“This event is a way for the community to get to know us and the traditions of our organization, and to show our appreciation to the community,” said Manj.

The regimental ball starts at 6 p.m. on Sept. 7 at the Royal Canadian Legion on Fort Street.

Tickets to the event are $50 at the Hope RCMP office, 690 Old Hope Princeton Way.

For more information, call 604-869-7750.
