Mane event

Huge crowd descends on Storey's Beach for world-renowned event.

Organizers estimated a crowd of around 2,000 came out to Storey’s Beach to see last week’s performance by the renowned RCMP Musical Ride, hosted by the Port Hardy Rotary Club.

The total raised by the event was still being counted up when the Gazette went to press, but a portion of the proceeds will go to Eagle Ridge Manor as well as other North Island non-profit groups.
