Battlefords-area residents looking for tickets to the RCMP Musical Ride can rest assured there will be space available.

Tami Conley-Blais is the interpretation officer coordinator for Fort Battleford National Historic Site in the town of Battleford where the event will be held June 3 and 4.

”We will sell [tickets] until people stop coming,” she said.

Bleachers will be set up for spectators to watch the performance and Conley-Blais said she's not concerned about the event selling out. 

“We have two events. People are going to spread themselves out over the two performances, so I think we should be good,” she said. “Even if you want to bring a lawn chair and set it up in front of the bleachers you are welcome to do that, or bring a blanket and sit on the grass."

Tickets will be available at Fort Battleford and at the gates before the shows.

The gates open about an hour and a half before performances. Showtime is at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 3 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 4.

Tickets will be $8 for adults and $4 for students; children aged five and under will be free to attend.

Before the Musical Ride performance, there will be a pre-show event featuring a fashion show showcasing period costumes.

The 2017 Musical Ride Tour is taking place as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

The event will feature 32 decorated horses taking part in the show. The last time the RCMP Musical Ride was performed in the Battlefords was in 2015.

“We’re very excited to bring this event back to the community ... and [to have them] chose to come to Fort Battleford again, considering they were here two years ago. They are only performing at three locations in the province of Saskatchewan this year,” Conley-Blais said.

She added the event will go ahead rain or shine.
