My Lil Pony Tale

Wow! Where does the time go?! It seems like I just blinked and almost a year has flown by since my last post. I have had SO many PONY adventures and I really need to share with you all. I have literally traveled around the world because of MY LITTLE PONY this past year. It has been kind of amazing! Alas, that is the focus of another day and post. Today, I have really exciting news!!

My Little Brony: A Book Review

It seems the Brony craze is alive and well as its culture continues to fascinate and puzzle. It permeates art, music, films, and now fiction with the book, My Little Brony An Unofficial Novel about Finding the Magic of Friendship, written by K.M. Hayes (no relation).

The writer successfully gives a brief history of the movement while also portraying gender stereotypes and how they negatively influence the central character in both his family and social spheres.

Fair 2015- Thank You!!

The 12th annual MY LITTLE PONY Fair took place over the weekend and I’m still attempting to catch my breath. We couldn’t have imagined that we’d have such a successful year with a total of over 2,200 individual people in attendance. In 2014, we hit just over 1,200 attendees, so this was quite an increase over the previous year’s numbers. I was pleasantly surprised that we had such a large crowd, but proud to say that the Fair Staff handled the influx without any hiccups. I seriously couldn’t have run this event without so many awesome helpers. The following people deserve Special Shout-Outs...

MY LITTLE PONY Fair 2015 Updates!

Tickets for the 12th annual MY LITTLE PONY Fair went on sale last Tuesday and we had record sales for our opening week. Several of our ticket packages sold out within hours of being released. It was craziness! I felt like I was selling tickets to a rock concert! We still have plenty of general admission and children’s tickets available, so don’t fear if you didn’t get your tickets right away. Today, I’ve been busy answering emails… so many emails! I think we may need to add a FAQ section to the website this year. I’ll be right on...
