Hi, everybody!! I live in Florida, and was so excited to see that there is going to be a MLP themed convention, Pony Fair in Tampa Florida. I wanted to know if anyone plans on going, or has gone before. I'm excited about this event, but I couldn't find too much information. It doesn't look like they are very active on social media. I know that they have extended their deadline again, but I still plan on going. Does anyone have experience with this convention?? :unsure:

Pony Fair is the longest running large-scale MLP convention in the US. I think only the Maryland Pony Meet predates it. I've been to the 2008 Fair under the original organizer and the 2012-2014 Fairs under the current organizer. It is always a well-planned event with many fun games and contests and, of course, ponies as far as the eye can see. It spent its previous two years in Florida. The reason that you're not seeing much active SM presence is likely due to the fluidity of the ongoing pandemic. I don't foresee the events happening in 2021 either.

Thanks for the reply, Skig! I appreciate the information. I was so excited to go last year, and then the pandemic hit. I'm hoping they still have it this year but as you said, I suppose I shouldn't get my hopes to high. :hmph: I'm glad at least to know that it's a high-quality convention so that I can really plan and look forward to it. I'm somewhat new to the mlp community and was looking forward to meeting other collectors in person. :tongue:

I miss pony get-togethers! Or any get together to be honest LOL I can't wait for the days when we can all do fun stuff together again. I don't know when I'll ever fly again, airports always seemed germy to me, I'm that person who was bringing wipes and sanitizer and taking airborne whenever I traveled and that was before the pandemic but even though I'm vaccinated I still plan to avoid flying for a while longer. So even if they do go ahead with it, I will have to pass this year :( Maybe next year we can all hang out at the pony fair!!! *fingers crossed*

A couple of years ago it was in or near Orlando, I forget, and there was another convention of interest in the area around the same time. I would have loved to have gone, but I couldn't work that out because I was broke. Grrr there was someone I really wanted to meet that attended the other con because she lives near there. Ughhh. It would have been a dream come true.

Okay, sorry, that's off topic as I veered off from the the pony fair. Of course, I also wanted to go to it! I just can only imagine that at least one of my parents would have come on the trip and come with me to the fair so I'm not alone and I wouldn't want to do that to them. lol.
