Twins Days Theme for 2002

The parade and the festival will have a patriotic theme to commemorate the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001 in the World Trade Center in New York. The floats should display a future of hope, rather than the tragedy of the past.

A Look Back at Last Year’s Festival

As we look back to the 2001 festival, and the extremely hot weather that we encountered, there were 2,460 sets of registered twins present at the festival — 540 sets short of the 3000 sets for which we’ve been aiming for many years. There was new entertainment that was well-received by the public.

Changes in the Registration Fee

We must address the registration fee that has been in effect for the past ten years or so. We have been seeing all of the costs of the festival rising over the same period, while the fees that have been charged for the registration have remained the same. With the costs of mailing, printing, awards and other various items rising on a yearly basis, the TDFC has come to the conclusion that the cost for registration must be increased to help defray the expense of preparing and providing the registration packets. Starting with this year’s festival, the registration fee will be increased by $5, to $15 for a set of twins to attend. Triplets, quads and quintuplets’ registration fees will be raised accordingly.

New: A Twins Mart

We have estrablished another category to the Commercial Vendors Tent: A Twins’ Mart!! It is located off of the Midway, across from the research tent. There will be twelve spaces available. It will be used exclusively for twin-related items. This will make it more convenient for those who want to purchase twin-related items only.

Hotel Information

The TDFC has contacted many hotels in the area that will do their best to accommodate you. Take your pick of the various accomodations and pricing available as listed listed on the hotels page of this website. Choose from a variety of listings and prices. Please refer to the listings for prices and availability. The Holiday Inn Hudson is our official Twins Days Hotel.

We’ve Added One More Day For Twins’ Talent Show

Due to popular demand, the TDFC will hold the Twins Talent Show on Saturday AND Sunday afternoons. Please indicate on your Twins Talent Show registration form which day you would prefer to perform. Time permitting, you will receive a postcard confirming that date. Remember: in order to participate in the Twins Talent Show, you and your multiple(s) must be registered.

Twin Volunteers Needed

The Twins Days Festival Committee would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the twins who have helped us in the past by working in the sourvenir booth, and in other areas of the festival. We appeal to the twins (at least 18 years old) to help us in the booths again this year. Please call us at (330)425-3652, fax us at (330)423-7280 or drop an e-mail to volunteer@twinsdays.org to make your reservations to give us a hand. We couldn’t do it without you!

Twins Days Golf Tournament

Hopefully there won’t be a downpour this year, so you may be able to play gold at Twinsburg’s Gleneagles championship golf course. All fees may be placed on your credit card. The tournament will be held on Friday, August 2nd, 2002. This will include lunch, dinner, door prizes, trophies — and a good time! Click here for more details.

STOCK REDUCTION SALE!!

The Twins Days Festival Committee has completed its reveiw and inventory of the souvenires that we presently have in stock, and we’ve decided: CLEAR OUT ALL SIZES AND TYPES OF GEAR, GLASSES, PENS, T-SHIRTS, SWEATHSIRTS, JACKETS AND MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS! We will be offering many items that we have for a one-time-only SALE: BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE, i.e.: if the item is listed for $12, you will be two of the same item for $12! The 2002 Twins Days Festival theme t-shirt is not included.
