“We have people from as far away as New Zealand purchasing tickets to these shows as this event is an icon of Canada and promises to be very entertaining. Sales are going quickly and we anticipate being sold out early,” said Patrick Webb, a member of the rotary club of Salmon Arm who is helping organize ticket sales. Webb added they are sold approximately halfway to capacity. He said tickets to the 7 p.m. show in Salmon Arm are selling the fastest.
