RCMP Musical Ride here this week

Two shows at Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds go Aug. 13 and Aug. 4

THE RCMP MUSICAL Ride is at the Exhibition grounds on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

They are on their way!

The 32-horses and riders that make up the RCMP Musical Ride are travelling through Vancouver Island on their way to the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds for the shows scheduled Aug. 13-14.

“It has been almost four years since the Musical Ride visited our community and there is no way of knowing when it shall return. So don’t miss one of the most talked-about events in our community this summer,” an event spokesperson said.

The RCMP Musical Ride represents a colourful Canadian tradition. The troupe will perform a variety of cavalry drills choreographed to music. As well, two wonderful pre-shows have been arranged for both of the evening performances slated to start at 6 p.m.

Kenny Shaw, comedian and musician, will perform on the 13th and two-time Juno award winner Sue Medley and The Back Road Band on Aug 14.

B.C. Lt.-Governor Judith Guichon will be one of the special guests on Aug. 13 who will be awarded the salute from the RCMP ride. The Comox Valley Record and 97.3 the Eagle, two of the many gold level supporters for the event, are hosting contests to give away tickets for the shows.

The community is invited to visit the stable viewing area at the C.V. Exhibition grounds (4839 Headquarters Rd.) Aug. 13-14, 9-9 p.m. (closed during shows). There will also be an opportunity to meet two of the horses and riders in the community on Aug. 13 at St Joseph’s Hospital in Comox at 10 a.m. and at Glacier View Lodge at 11:30. The stable and community visits are free of charge.

Tickets for the evening shows are $10 in advance, $12 at the gate, children six and under are free. Tickets are available at the Sid Williams Theatre  www.sidwilliamstheatre.com. For locations in town see www.cvtrs.com. Did you know we have had ticket purchases from as far away as Manitoba, England and Australia? Will you be one?
