Mh. Fine for now. The pitch promises more but that more would be too soon so I'll be patient. I noticed this story will rely heavily on 'Shy being shy and a heavy dose of feelings so whenever the story strays to that, it should be noted.
It mostly happens in dialogs, with two notable examples.
One in the first chapter: "Wow. What a load of fun that is." At that point I remembered what the atmosphere was, kind of sad, so a paragraph reminding the reader about it and contrasting it with the tone in the dialog - more joyous - would have been needed.
The other example is when Fluttershy shows her wings. Not only is that a golden occasion to re-describe her again, because frankly any occasion to describe her cuteness is good for the story, but it's also an occasion to return to that atmosphere of... well... 'Shy being shy. Which is also why her stern look was kind of... maybe it's me.

Other than that I would advise to keep the town's name anonymous, mostly to allow the reader to appropriate the place, helps for the immersion. The setting plays a big role too, in defining the environment and thus, as much the possibilities as the broader ambiance. Like a busier day than usual, usually a signal of an incoming event.
Remember also to explain less. That's paradoxal, because when the character went to take a flashlight, I thought you didn't develop enough. But actually, in that sort of story you're allowed to skim over details, because of the subjectivity. What's important is the feelings, not how things work. I'm of course referring to their planning of 'Shy flying over roofs - which wouldn't work, but as I said, it's irrelevant.
What's important is to make people live the moment. Put them in the boots of your character. You're avoiding the heavy rationale, I'm grateful for that, but you can't make the economy of feelings.

So, less dialog, more narration, less care for how events unfold and more for how they are perceived. And it should work out just fine.
