Wheeee! Ride 'em, cowderpy. This is a thing that's happening. Here, let me get out of the way and let the official Bronycon press release do the talking:
Good evening everypony,
BronyCon has yet another spectacular announcement to make your night! We have been working hard to get as much talent and amazing guests for BronyCon Summer 2012.
Now, we are honored to announce the fantastic and talented Peter New! The voice for Big Mac himself. Eeeyup, he’ll be there, and we are excited to have him!
Stay tuned for more announcements from BronyCon!
Update: They also have a livestream event planned, find information on that below.
Bronycon will once again be hosting a Livestream on 4/18/2012 at 9:30 PM. There will be a general Q&A session with some members of the convention staff, and we are also very pleased to announce the second guest in our Bronycon Artist’s Spotlight; Circuitfry! He is best known for his work with the massive 50 song album “We Broke It”. He will be available to talk a little about the community, his work, the convention itself, and of course, there will be time for the community to ask questions as well. We hope to see you all there!

During that Royal Wedding event in Culver City a few days ago, they brought Brooke Burke from Modern Mom and Dancing with the Stars to replace Tori Spelling for the day. It looks like they are way into it, and running a full on Twitter party this Thursday!
If you want to join in, all you need to do is follow ModernMom, and and toss a #ponywedding out between 1-2:00 PM PST on the 19th of April. Everyone that joins is entered to win one of 6 My Little Pony Prize Packs, which include a Friendship Express train set and a few other goodies. The grand prize will receive is a Sony Bloggie.
Check out their website here for status updates over the next few days!
Over in Los Angeles, the annual festival of books is coming up on April 21st to the 22nd. It seems like every event has ponies at this point, because Meghan McCarthy and Tara Strong are signed on for a 1:00 PM School for Cinematic Arts panel. Have some copy paste for details:
“Read it and Weep” Episode of “My Little Pony:What better way to promote the written word than Read it and Weep? That episode has to have some form of subliminal message, because I ran straight to the nearest epic length Trixie fanfic and blew two hours right after watching it.
Friendship is Magic” presented by The Hub TV Network
Q & A to follow with showrunner Meghan McCarthy and actor Tara Strong, voice of Twilight Sparkle, Interviewed by Dawn C. Chmielewski (Panel 2152)
Located in the Broccoli Theater
Anyway, check the entire schedule for the event out here!
Update: Sounds like the LA Brony group already snagged the tickets! Hope you guys can find some!
We were going to wait for a press release on this one, but they have tossed enough information up on the Facebook page to get a good idea of it.
My Little Pony Project is a worldwide pony celebration. There are quite a few events listed for the LA area in May, I'll drop those below:
This special exhibition launches in Los Angeles on May 5, 2012 at Toy Art Gallery and will showcase the MY LITTLE PONY Project charity ponies, 18" MY LITTLE PONY figures designed by international fine artists, and MY LITTLE PONY pop-up shop by WeLoveFine. Select shops from Toy Art Gallery to JapanLA, Joyrich, Munky King, and more will host secret pony items, turning Melrose Avenue into "MY LITTLE PONY Avenue". Please join us in celebrating the world of MY LITTLE PONY.This appears to be the big opening of the project. I wonder what secret pony items will be available?
May 12th, 2012 : 12noon - 3pmWe actually received an invitation with these listed on them at the Royal Wedding party a few days ago, and the blurb above definitely piqued our curiosity. I wonder what episode they will be airing? Maybe a sneak peak at season three? Who knows! Speculation time!
MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship Is Magic screening and panel with the voice actors. Ticket information is coming soon.
May 12th, 2012 : 5pm - 8pmI bet a ton of you would love to hit that one up. Hopefully the press release reveals who exactly will be attending these signings and panels!
MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship Is Magic autograph poster signing and meet & greet at Toy Art Gallery. This is a free event.
May 19th, 2012: 1pm - 5pmAs for the actual "Worldwide" aspect, it sounds like this will be visiting various countries, though only Japan is listed as outside the US.

And as Lyra watched the portal to Humania close, a single tear trickled down her cheek. Her time there had been brief, but she knew it would change her life forever...
Huh? Oh, hi there! Didn't see you come in. I was just... uh... you know what, it's not important. Welcome! We recently came across this LA Weekly article going through the first two seasons of FiM and listing the top 5 friendship lessons by importance for adults to learn/relearn. It's pretty neat to get that kind of perspective, and our glorious blog overlord asked me to show it to you last night as late-breaking news. Now, I'm not saying I got lazy and fell asleep because this is a serious journalist organization and that kind of nonsense doesn't fly at Equestria Daily, but I really needed to
This is a pretty well thought out article, but lessons in the magic of friendship are, as everything else, a matter of perspective. So what's yours? Tell us all about the lessons ponies have at least given you a refresher course on, the episodes that remind you of your friends, and the things that you have taken away from your viewings that have surprised or inspired you. Fillies and gentlecolts, friendship awaits!
In a stunning development undermining years of scientific research, the supreme court has ruled that magical talking ponies are pets, and not eligible for citizenship and full rights despite being sentient and fully capable of displaying the full range of intelligence, thoughts, and self awareness as human beings. Celestia was unavailable for comment, with a guard adding it was "probably better that we don't talk to her now." Resident glass half full expert Pinkie Pie had this to say: "It sounds like fun! If I'm a pony that's a pet, I can have pony pet play dates even when I'm by myself!" She then proceeded to wave at what looked alarmingly like another Pinkie. More on this as it develops.
In other news, Hasbro has put up a pair of videos containing clips from Seasons 1 and 2 on youtube, which have reportedly been seen as video ads playing on the popular video sharing site's adsense service. "Starring your favorite pets", these ads continue to spread awareness of pony and provide that first taste of music and colorful equine frendship to all of those too entrenched in their Let's Plays, music videos, and cats-in-boxes to notice them. Check below the break and see the ads for yourself!
It looks like Toys R' Us is getting yet another exclusive, though this one looks to be less focused on us, and more on the little girls that want pink Celestia market! This is also part of the new Pony Friends Forever toyline, though not much information is known about what exactly that entails.
Check out the store page on Taobao.
