The SoCal Bronies are coming out in full force to celebrate the 100th episode of “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic” Saturday (June 13).
The meet-up is happening at a Holiday Inn in Fullerton, Calif., kicking things off at noon PT and going all day. Cosplay is encouraged, especially for the show’s minor characters, as the episode, titled “Slice of Life,” is celebrating Ponyville’s lesser-known residents.
But for those who can’t go to a meet-up, Bronies are also celebrating on social media.

“Slice of Life” features a first-time spotlight on the supporting characters, as they scramble to make everything perfect for Cranky and Matilda’s wedding celebration. Meanwhile, the main ponies — Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Rarity — defend Ponyville from a surprise attack.
There will even be a special performance at the wedding from Octavia and DJ Pon-3, and some surprise guest appearances.
“The ‘My Little Pony’ brand has taught fans of all ages about the power of
friendship for more than 30 years through socially relevant messages of
acceptance and kindness,” says Stephen Davis, Hasbro Inc.’s chief content officer. “What a great celebration it will be with our 100th episode
of ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’ — chocked full of special
character appearances, great music and lots of story surprises. In the
words of Rainbow Dash, it’s going to be ‘Truly Awesome!'”
