Twins Days Festival

This was one of the more interesting festivals we have ever attended.  The Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio.  This is the largest twins festival in the world.
Click on any of the photos for a closer look.  As we pulled into town, we noticed a few pairs of twins walking towards the parade.  We were like...oh look, some twins.

The closer we looked all we saw were twins.

That's when I started feeling like I was in an episode of The Twilight Zone.

Apparently Twins do not mind posing for photos.

I couldn't figure out why all of the twins looked like hippies until we found out that each year they have a different theme for the parade.  This years was the 60's.

Honestly, I think just plain twins would have been interesting enough.

And it is not just for twins either.  We saw plenty of triplets and a few sets of quads.

We even saw twins watching twins.

When I think of twins, I just think about their faces looking the same.  But when you are surrounded by them, you see that everything about them is exactly the same, even their expressions and movements.

At times it was sort of creepy.  This woman has a shirt that reads; Another Day in Pair-adise.  Some twins were carrying signs that read:  Save water, share a womb.

The Double Take Parade.

At a certain point, I was feeling strange not having a double.

It was also weird seeing baby twins as well as really old twins. I felt like asking the really old twins why they hadn't grown out of this by now. 

I would much rather see them without the hippie garb.  Maybe next year.  More tomorrow!
