Fans of all ages gathered in Germany over the weekend to celebrate and share their love of the hit animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic continues to have a passionate fan base of teenage and adult fans all across the world, as the Hasbro animated series prepares to launch its fourth season in November.

In Ludwigsburg, Germany at the Forum am Scholss-park, many of these fans from across Europe and the world gathered together for the GalaCon convention.

Fans could meet voice actors from both the primary English version of the show or from some of the European dubs. Fan artists, musicians and craftspeople were there to both sale merchandise and hold panels on the making of that art. There was also time for fans to meet and play classic board games and video games.

The show has attracted this broad demographic of fans for a variety of reasons. Bronies state that they enjoy the show because of the animation, positive world, voice acting, humor, writing, upbeat tone, fleshed-out characters, music, and other reasons. A vast and thriving fan base online continues to create fan fiction, artwork, music and even animations based on the show.
