Shuswap RCMP musical ride tickets selling fast

Over 2000 tickets sold for performances on July 16 and 17.

With over a week to go until Shuswap audiences will be dazzled by the horsemanship of the RCMP musical ride troupe, it is already apparent that the shows will be well attended.

Approximately 2100 tickets in total have been sold for the two shows in Salmon Arm on July 16 and the third show in Sicamous on the 17. The Salmon Arm shows will be held at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., the Sicamous show the following day is at 6 p.m.

“We have people from as far away as New Zealand purchasing tickets to these shows as this event is an icon of Canada and promises to be very entertaining. Sales are going quickly and we anticipate being sold out early,” said Patrick Webb, a member of the rotary club of Salmon Arm who is helping organize ticket sales. Webb added they are sold approximately halfway to capacity. He said tickets to the 7 p.m. show in Salmon Arm are selling the fastest.
