More than 1,250 people were regaled by the RCMP Musical Ride at Pass Creek Park Sunday.
Two RCMP members involved in the ride required medical attention that day, but worried spectators will be relieved to know both have recovered fully and are doing fine.
One police officer experienced an asthma attack, while another lost consciousness as a result of the heat.
Castlegar RCMP Cpl. Mike Mysko said the members' signature red serge outfits, while wonderfully warm in winter, are not always ideal for scorching B.C. summers
"It (red serge) is made of wool and very warm,:" he said, adding the minor mishaps did not mar a very positive and entertaining occassion.
