Fireworks Are Back!

The fireworks are BACK! As some of you may recall, the popular fireworks display had been cancelled last year, due to new Astroturf on the athletic field, and concerns regarding fire safety. Well, the launch site has been relocated, and all parties involved have given their approval for the display to continue. So come on down and enjoy the show! Saturday, August 5th at the festival site. Display begins at dusk.

2005 Attendance

The official count from the 2005 festival was 2,025 sets of twins. As happens every year, there were a lot more twins in attendance than are reflected in the official count. However, if they don’t register, we have no way of counting them.

2005 Group Photos

It takes 6-8 weeks after the festival for us to receive the photos and prep. time to mail them out.
The photos will begin to be mailed out Friday, September 16th., if twins do not receive their photos by October 1, please contact the Twins Days Office by phone or email (contact information is here).
