There's Nothing Better Than This Epic Festival Near Cleveland
The start of spring means the beginning of festival season across America. In and around Cleveland, there are dozens of fantastic festivals that celebrate all sorts of events and cultures over the next several months, but just outside Cleveland is perhaps the most unusual and incredible of all. During the first weekend of every August, one Forest City suburb brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “seeing double.”
The Twins Days Festival was founded in 1976 as a celebration of two historic twins and the founders of Twinsburg, Ohio; Moses and Aaron Wilcox. At the inaugural festival, only 37 pairs of twins arrived, but attendance has skyrocketed to as many as 2,800 pairs.
It is an unwritten rule at Twins Days Festival that all twins, especially the identical ones, are expected to dress alike. This can range from simply matching shirts to some truly extravagant costumes that are a sight to see.
Activities at Twins Days Festival range from a massive parade of twins to activities like twin sports and live music performances.
Some twins have been appearing at the festival and celebrating their siblinghood for decades, leading to a strong sense of community and shared passion for all things twinning.
Twins Days Festival has attracted thousands of twins throughout its 40-year history. In addition to the twins themselves, many flock to the town for the weekend just to be a part of the festivities.
Twins Days Festival is a fascinating way to learn about how relationships between twins work. Major scientific studies on the behavior of twins have been conducted by curious scientists drawn to the festival.
Twins Days Festival draws pairs from all over the world. The theme for this year's festival will focus on that international status, as twins from abroad are asked to dress up in outfits pertaining to their homeland.
Whether you're a twin or not, the unique excitement of seeing thousands of identical pairs roaming the town of Twinsburg over the weekend of the Twins Days Festival is a truly unforgettable sight that you will definitely want to experience twice.
