THE LARGEST GATHERING OF TWINS IN THE WORLD
Twins Day is a festival for biological twins which has taken place every summer since 1976 in Twinsburg, Ohio, when the festival was founded by Revco’s Charles R. DeHaven. It is the largest annual gathering of twins in the world, and draws thousands of participants from all over the United States and the globe.
The Twins Day event was inspired by a pair of enterprising 19th-century twins, Moses and Aaron Wilcox. “They were the identical twins who bought about 4,000 acres of land here in 1819, and then offered to donate six acres for a town square and $20 towards a new school, on one condition: that the place drop its dull old name, Millsville, and become Twinsburg.
