Twins fly from Australia to attend Twinsburg Twins Day

Gathering of twins in Twinsburg

TWINSBURG, OH (WOIO) - It's a big year for the Twinsburg Twins Days Festival in Northeast Ohio.  It's the largest annual gathering of twins in the world.

The festival in Twinsburg is in its 200th year.  The city of Twinsburg was founded by identical twins Aaron and Moses Wilcox in 1817.

The theme of this year's festival is "Twin Centennial." A set of twins flew all the way from Australia to attend the festival.

David and Phillip said they love connecting with other twins who understand what it's like to have that special bond with a sibling. 

The festival is being held at Glen Chamberlin Park on Ravenna Road until 7 p.m. Sunday.
