A unique piece of Canadian showmanship is making its return to Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley this summer.

Touching down in various communities across the country, the RCMP Musical Ride tour will be stopping at Cloverdale Fairgrounds in Surrey on June 24 and 25 and at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby on June 26.

Fans in the Fraser Valley can also see the full troop of 32 riders and horses at Chilliwack Heritage Park on June 29 for two shows.

The typically half-hour-long show features intricate drills and choreography, including 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’ mounts launch into a gallop.

The RCMP Musical Ride has played a role in Canada’s national police force since 1873. It has toured around the world, including in Europe and Asia, and proceeds of events support local charities.
