The RCMP Heritage Centre has officially launched its 10th summer season.
And it includes plenty of highlights:
- 2016 Sunset-Retreat Ceremonies at “Depot”
- Behind the Gates Driving Tours of “Depot”
- Summer Feature Exhibit – Sgt. Brinkworth: Police Photographer
- New Musical Ride Virtual Reality Experience
- Spirits of the Trail: Theatre on Horseback
- New Electronic Sign
- Landmark Art Installation
The interactive installation was created by local company Talking Dog Studios which allows guests the opportunity to literally “hop in a saddle” and experience the RCMP Musical Ride in 3D virtual reality.
Louise Lafrance, the Commanding Officer of the RCMP was on hand Wednesday to launch the new season.
She says The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been an integral part of Canada’s historical and cultural landscape since 1873.
The Mounties have trained at the RCMP Academy, ‘Depot’ Division in Regina since 1885 and Lafrance says the Centre brings to life the story of the RCMP and its role in the development of Canada.
The RCMP Heritage Centre is located at 5907 Dewdney Avenue in Regina.
