    Denver, October 5, 2014: Teen and adult My Little Pony fans, also known as "Bronies," are getting excited for the 2nd annual Running of the Leaves Convention. Running of the Leaves Con is back after hosting the first successful My Little Pony Convention in Colorado in 2013. Running of the Leaves is going to be held in Denver, Colorado at the Denver North Plaza & Conference Center from October 31st through November 2nd. "This is a convention is child friendly," says Convention Director Joey Crawford, "our event will be geared towards fun for the whole family."

    Some of the "mane" events planned for Running of the Leaves include a "Nightmare Night" party on Halloween, a dance party, cosplay costume contests, panels on a variety of topics, stand-up comedy and more! In addition to the fun events and panels, there will also be an Artist's Stable where talented Brony artists can showcase and sell their artwork.

    Several popular members of the fandom will be appearing as guests including DJ Odyssey Eurobeat, and Brony cosplayer Lochlan O'Neil. Additionally, there will be performances by Cabaret Otaku and the Dolls of Insanity as the "Elements of Insanity."

    At the end of the weekend a 5K race is planned to keep to the Running of the Leaves theme. "We will be unlike any ponycon seen before," stated Crawford enthusiastically. "We can't wait."
