Midwestria took place about two weekends ago, I’ve seen a few people confused about this when the EqD version was posted last night. This past weekend of course was Canterlot Gardens, which outside of the videos we hope to bring you something more, since we had at least two people from our little animal house group attending. Unfortunately Midwestria was one of the many events we had to miss out on, but the staff has given their own report for us to post, namely highlighting the good and the fun.
So for your entertainment – The Midwestria 2012 Wrap Up Press Release (after the page break):
Also The Round Stable has just published their own write up, as they had someone on location. Read it here.
All the excitement for Midwestria 2012 has finally settled for our staff to bring you our best highlights and other news worthy stuff!
