Sooke Lions are hosting the world renowned Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride on August 18 & 19 in Sooke with proceeds going to Tour de Rock, Cops for Cancer.
Representing a colourful tradition and ceremony through the horse and scarlet uniform, the RCMP Musical Ride provides people, young and old, with a part of the heritage and national identity of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The troop of 32 horses and riders whirl and perform cavalry drills to the choreographed music making this an iconic spectacle not to be missed. All proceeds will go to Tour de Rock which funds pediatric cancer research and sends sick children and their families to Camp Goodtimes each year.
