What better way to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation than by attending the world-famous RCMP Musical Ride show in Canada’s capital? The iconic image of the Mountie on horseback is recognized around the world as a symbol of Canadian heritage and identity.
The Sunset Ceremonies is a time-honoured tradition in Ottawa, featuring a performance by the world-famous RCMP Musical Ride and their signature flag-lowering ceremony at sunset, among other activities and police displays.
The Musical Ride, with a full troop of 32 riders and their horses, consists of complex and thrilling cavalry figures and drills choreographed to music. These movements demand the utmost control, timing and coordination.
Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the show! Admission is free.
