As always, the festival will kick off with the Double Take Parade Aug. 6. Activities for twins and multiples throughout the weekend will include twins contests; twins talent show; twins research area; twins group photo; entertainment, arts and crafts; twin-related and sponsored booths; small amusement rides and games; and a spectacular firework show the evening of Aug. 5.

Morning activities Aug. 6 will include the Twins Days 5K Run and Fun Walk benefitting the Melanoma Education Initiative.

As always, food concessions and official souvenirs will be available throughout the weekend. See the Aug. 3 Twinsburg Bulletin for much more on the upcoming festival.
