It’s an annual event that attendees spend a year anticipating. And this weekend’s Twins Days, a festival celebrating twins in - where else? - Twinsburg, Ohio, was the biggest jamboree yet. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the festival had about 2,000 sets of twins turn out, from toddlers to adults.

The Twins Days Festival is open to all multiples - identical, fraternal, young and old, twins, triplets, quads and their families, and entry costs $4. ‘They’re our second family,’ Carolyn Fertig, 28, told local Twinsburg newspaper The Akron Beacon Journal.

‘It’s like coming home every year,’ her twin sister, Katherine Fertig, added. The Twins Days Festival is the largest annual gathering of twins and other multiples in the world. The festival first began in 1975.
