If you’re strolling around Twinsburg just south of Cleveland in early August, don’t be alarmed if you start seeing double. The Twins Days Festival, set for Aug. 2-4, is the “largest annual gathering of twins and multiples in the world” according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
The past 43 festivals have seen over 77,000 sets of twins and others of multiple births, and the event has received international media coverage. One year, nine sets of twins visited from the Soviet Union. More than 25,000 people attend, and it generates about $5 million for the economy.
