Twilight Sparkle's Coronation!

I must admit I have never really watched My Little Pony. My daughter isn't particularly into it either, BUT, she IS very much into horses. So when we had the opportunity to attend The Hub TV Network “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic” Coronation Concert for Twilight Sparkle, the newest My Little Pony, we decide to go. Joining us were two friends and their daughters, so it was a girls day. It was great fun! And thanks to OC Mom Blog for the tickets!

Everyone in the audience received a goody bag complete with princess supplies: a crown, wand, bubbles, sparkles confetti and a noisemaker. There were live performances by the by the USC a cappella group The SoCal VoCals, as well as celebrity guests and talent from the show, including:

·         Halle Berry with daughter Nahla Aubry and Olivier Martinez
·         Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan as our special event host
·         Special guest Olympic Gold Medalist Carmelita Jeter
·         Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (“Modern Family”)
·         Chloe Noelle (“True Blood”)
·         Jason Priestley (“Beverly Hills 90210”)
·         The voice of Twilight Sparkle herself Tara Strong
·         Head writer and creator of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Meghan McCarthy
·         And the musical genius behind the show Daniel Ingram
·         Margaret Loesch, President and CEO of The Hub TV Network

We discovered  the characters: Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Applejack and Rarity, and at intervals during the screening, we were instructed to blow bubbles, wave our wands and toss confetti. After the show we met Miss America, Mallory Hagan. She was very warm and hugged all the little girls and never lost her smile. I had expected to watch a cartoon and ended up having a really good time with my and my daughter's friends! Unfortunately our cable company does not offer HubTV, so we'll miss the official debut on TV. But our sneak peek and girls day was well worth it!
