The Russell Lions Club presents: the RCMP Musical Ride! (June 1st, 2018)

Yes! The rumors are true! The Russell Lions Club is proud to present the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride. A Canadian tradition since 1876, a troop of 32 scarlet coated “Mounties” on majestic black horses present a 30 minute show of intricate figures and cavalry drills choreographed to music.

Take advantage of this truly Canadian experience and see one of our national treasures perform live at the Russell Fair Grounds (1076 Concession Street, Russell, Ontario) on June 1st, 2018. The excitement starts at 5:30 p.m.!

Tickets will go on sale soon and will be $10 for adults, $5 for youth (between 5 and 13 years of age) and FREE for children under 5! We will be listing here the locations where tickets will be sold soon.

Come back here for more information as the date gets closer. We have a page dedicated to the Musical Ride

2018 Food Drive - April 28th, 2018

The Lions' will come a-knockin' and we'll surely prove yet again that Russell is an incredibly generous town!

Some of you wait all year to greet a Lion at your door and some of you simply leave boxes and bags on your doorstep filled with food (so we don't interrupt much deserved sleeping-in)!

Remember: non-perishable food, bath & hygiene supplies are preferable.

2018 Canada Day Celebrations (July 1)

Another favourite – small town Canada Day celebrations! A fun day for the whole family with great entertainment, kids games, fireworks, and more! See you at the Russell Lions Ball Park!
