Downtown Hope, BC has a new carving! Over the past several months community members have been working with carver Ryan Villeirs to complete an incredible carving of Sylvester Stallone as “Rambo” from the film First Blood (filmed in Hope). A small social distancing gathering was held Downtown Hope to unveil the carving with messages shared by our Rambo Tourism representative Brian Mckinney, Victor Smith of Communities in Bloom / District of Hope Councillor, Shannon Jones of Advantage Hope, Mayor Peter Robb, and Global BC’s Mark Madryga as we celebrated First Blood and the Film Industry in Hope, BC! Special thank you to Hope Communities in Bloom for their hard work putting this together! Another great addition to both the Hope Chainsaw Carvings Collection and the Rambo First Blood Walking Tour.

Thanks to all who tuned into the live video  the “Rambo First Blood Tourism Facebook page and all the local businesses and volunteers who worked to make this a reality! #ProudToLiveInHopeBC
