Can Canberra step up to host the Pony Fair?

The My Little Pony Trading Post (MLPTP to those in the know) has the exciting news that Canberra is hard in the running (with Sydney and Melbourne) to host the Australian Pony Fair.

    Following the recent polls on where the Australian Pony Fair should be held this year, we have minimized the selection down to the top three locations, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. In order to establish where the fair will be out of these cities, we are putting out the call for people who live in either Melbourne, Sydney or Canberra (and their surrounding areas) who wish to act as organisers for the event. The fair will be held wherever we can get a strong and effective team put together – there isn’t much point holding the fair in a location that is popular but no one is able to organise it in that city.

    We are looking for a group of people to organise the event along with a head organiser. The team will have to be able to work on the event between the deciding of their city as host and probably October at the very latest. The team will of course have the full support and assistance of the Pony Collectors Australia and its members.

    If you are interested in and are able to help in either of these cities, please respond with the location you can help at and if you would like to be a part of the team or the head organiser. As we are running out of time, there will only be two weeks for names to be collected before the location is settled on.

C’mon Chief Minister, surely you can get a crack team onto winning this prize event?

…So is it for real pony’s or My Little Pony pony’s?

Will there be a RiotAct delegation?

Come on JB, I know that you really want to go…

Little plastic ponies of course!

Well first Canberra has to win this coveted event.

But I’ll admit I’m curious as to just how insane these women are.

Do you have to be a MLP collector to run this event, or can anyone put their hand up because they see an opportunity to film a award winning doco about freaks and their weirdo hobbies?

It is not so much the women I am worried about…

I don’t see why you can’t give it a go.

But will you really understand all the special needs of the MLP enthusiast?

This could be a cack. I hope Mr Stanhope throws millions at it so we can be the toast of the MLP world 😉

People actually collect these things?

Call me crazy, but I’d love to go to this if Canberra was chosen!

I suspect there’s a major risk that genuine pony enthusiasts would be overwhelmed by rubberneckers.

But I’d be tempted to buy the right t-shirt from them.

My mind is torn between insane women who use these as replacement children, the hardcore collectors of both sxes who have never opened a box but have a mint condition MLP unicorn, and the mature men who play with MLP and plait their manes.

Sounds like I’ve done something pretty horrible to your mind there.

Now this is the sort of event the Government should be supporting instead of Summernats.

I, for one, would like to see our ACT Minister for Tourism, Sport and Education get up and talk about how much we need an event like this.
That would be nice.

Scoff at these fine women if you will, but think of the opportunity to cash in… a small bag of polystyrene beads and some mission brown spray paint = the ultimate MLP accessory…

If this is here, I’m so making the four My Little Apocalypse Ponys and taking them along.

I think it is a must for the ACT. I can just see the MLP convention flags flying on Kings Ave and the MLP flower garden on Vernon Circle.

We could become the centre of the MLP universe, strange women in floral dresses and straw hats will make the pilgrimage from all corners of the globe. Think of the billions added to the local economy…
