Come celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday and Burnaby's 125th Birthday - and see one of Canada's most recognized icons, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Musical Ride performing at Swangard Stadium on August 18. The evening will be packed with a variety of entertainment that includes performers, activities and displays - perfect for the whole family.
The highlight of the evening is a unique Canadian performance that features a troop of 32 horses and riders performing choreographed cavalry drills to music. From the famous "Dome" formation, which was once featured on the back of the Canadian fifty-dollar bill, to the exciting "Charge" movement, where lances are lowered and the riders and their mounts launch into a gallop, the RCMP Musical Ride continues to be a much loved event across Canada.
Proceeds from the ticket sales will help support the Honour House Society and the Burnaby Neighbourhood House.
