VIDEO: RCMP Musical Ride thrills sold-out crowd at Thunderbird Showpark

The Langley RCMP Musical Ride performed to a sold-out crowd at Thunderbird Showpark on Friday night.

And it was a distinctly Canadian affair.

The show — set almost exclusively to music by Canadian artists, including Great Big Sea, Bryan Adams, Shania Twain and even the Hockey Night in Canada theme — featured intricate precision riding by more than 30 Mounties from across Canada wearing iconic Red Serge.
