26 - 27Twins Days Festival - No, you're not seeing double! (Then again, maybe you are?!) Welcome to the biggest and best! The Guinness Book of World Records declares this to be the "World's Largest Annual Gathering of Twins!" Known the world over from tv and print media coverage, this will be the thirty-third year of celebrating the unique bond of twins (and triplets, quads, on up...) and honoring Twinsburg's own identical twins, Moses and Aaron Wilcox, early settlers of our city.

Around two thousand sets of twins register each year for the contests, talent shows, parade, and other events that make this weekend such a one-of-a-kind, fun event! And it's not just fun for the twins, either, but also for those just coming to marvel at what that many twins look like! The highlight is the Double Take Parade, which kicks off the festivities at 9AM on Saturday morning. On-site activities include food, crafts, research, entertainment and fireworks. This annual event takes place the first full weekend of August each year, and as you may guess, advance hotel reservations are a MUST! Join us, won't you?
