Tickets to see the RCMP Musical Ride at Semiahmoo Park this summer are officially on sale.
White Rock’s director of leisure services Eric Stepura advised council last week that 2,000 spots are up for grabs to the July 26 event, at a cost of $12 for general-admission seating (1,500 available) and $8 for standing-room-only tickets.
The city is partnering with Semiahmoo First Nation, White Rock RCMP and the Semiahmoo Volunteer Police Society to host the ride. Stepura said it is the first in a series of performances planned for the Lower Mainland.
Performances are also set for Cloverdale’s Stetson Bowl on July 27 and 28.
Stepura said the Semiahmoo Park event will include a pre-show at 6:30 p.m., followed by the ride at 7:15 p.m.
It will be held in a “temporary stadium” to be erected on the park’s southeast ball diamond. Logistics of parking are still being worked out, Stepura said.
Tickets for the performance are available at Centennial Arena, the Kent Street Activity Centre and the White Rock Community Centre. They may also be purchased online at https://tickets.surrey.ca
Two other major events Stepura highlighted Monday were the July 1 Canada Day by the Bay and the Tour de White Rock, set for July 12-14.
More than 120 cyclists are expected to compete in the Tour de White Rock this year.
In response to road-condition concerns raised by Coun. Al Campbell, Stepura assured that all routes needing attention will be patched to ensure rider safety.
