RICHMOND, British Columbia (NBC/CBC) - It was a very different kind of social gathering in Canada on Sunday – and all for the love of “My Little Pony.”
They call themselves “Bronies.”
They're die-hard fans of the children's cartoon "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" -- many of them grown adults.
And they've all gathered for the first-ever Canadian Bronie Convention.
Conferences like this happen all throughout the United States.
Nearly 800 Bronies attended the event in Richmond this weekend.
Many Bronies say the show teaches them about friendship, love and inclusion.
On Saturday, the Michigan State Spartans will be taking on the Ohio State Buckeyes for the Big Ten College Football title. On Friday, fans began gathering in Indianapolis for the big game.
