The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is pleased to invite the public and the media to experience the 2010 Canadian Sunset Ceremonies from June 23 to June 27 inclusive.
Each night, spectators will be treated to a wide variety of performances including the world famous Musical Ride and the signature Sunset Ceremony.
For the first time, Vintage Wings of Canada will take part in the Sunset Ceremonies, showcasing two of their airplanes, the de Havilland Beaver and the DH-83 Fox Moth . There will also be a special demonstration by the Canada Border Service Agency’s Detector Dogs.
Proceeds donated by the crowds will be given to the RCMP Foundation. The RCMP Foundation provides much needed funding to community initiatives that support Canada’s youth.
Rain or shine, free performances will run nightly from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the RCMP stables, located at the Canadian Police College on St. Laurent Blvd. North.
Visitors can access the grounds via OC Transpo route #7. Free parking is available directly off the Rockcliffe Parkway, however, space is very limited.
