Comment The Post Below...

Monday, January 16, 2006 

Greetings FF&OO Member,

As you know, this is my final newsletter, and I thought I
would share with you a few of the kind words my readers
have written, they meant so much to me. Thanks. I wish you 
were the powers that be! I will truly miss sharing these 
fests with you, but I trust you all will carry on and 
continue to attend Festivals & Fairs wherever they may be. 
Be sure to always have fun, life is too short!

P.S. Don't worry, folks. Your subscription isn't disappearing. 
We're putting you in the very competent hands of Jan, the 
editor of "Weekend Getaways." Make sure to look for that 
newsletter in your email box this Friday. I know you'll love 
it! Thanks again for everything.

August 4-6, 2006                              Twinsburg, OH
http://www.twinsdays.org/                     330-425-3652   

This one is for my twin nieces, Gracie and Ally, tell your
Mom and Dad to take you here this summer for a really great
time. This fest is one of the world's largest gathering of
twins (usually anywhere from about 2,000-2,700 sets of twins)
and is held in Twinsburg every year.

The secret to the success of this event are all of the twins
who return year after year, and promote the festival
throughout the world. It has become a three-day reunion of
old friendships and an opportunity to kindle new ones.

You or your kids are never too young or old to enjoy this
event. The attendees every year run the range of ages from
newborns to octogenarians. Recently, the youngest twins in
attendance were 11 days old! Obviously, at that age, the
festival is more for the parents to meet other parents of
multiples than it is for the kids. But there are quite a few
kids who have been coming since they were born - and now that
they're 8-12 years old (or older) the festival has turned
into an event they can look forward to every year.

What about non-identical twins you may wonder. Why yes! There
is a place for everyone here. There are tons of twins who are
not identical at this festival. It may not show from all of
the photographic evidence - people tend more often to take
pictures of all of the "doubles" - but there are a lot of
non-identical sets every year, and they are equally welcome.

What's really fun is when the brother/sister sets show up in
identical clothing any ways. Sure, it's silly. But it's a
great lot of fun!  

Also, it's perfectly okay to bring friends and family.
(Somebody has to take all those pictures of you and your twin
with all the other twins!)
