About Twins Day Festival

It's twice the fun when thousands of identical and fraternal pairs, as well as other multiples, descend on Twinsburg for the �Largest Annual Gathering of Twins in the World!� Those in attendance will enjoy games, a 5K Race/Walk, fireworks and other activities during the weekend.Twinsburg is located in the northeast part of Ohio, half way between Cleveland and Akron.In 1818, a pair of identical twins named Moses and Aaron Wilcox from Killingworth, Connecticut, purchased some 4,000 acres of land and began selling small parcels at low prices to attract other settlers. The Wilcox twins offered 6 acres of land for a public square and $20.00 toward starting the first school if the residents would change the settlement's name from Millsville to Twinsburg.Moses and Aaron Wilcox were reportedly so identical only their closest friends could tell them apart. They were lifelong business partners, held all their property in common, married sisters, had the same number of children, contracted the same fatal ailment and died within hours of each other. They are buried in the same grave in Twinsburg� Locust Grove Cemetery.
