There were some 1,700 sets of twins attending the event, along with multiples and quads ranging in ages from less than a month old to seniors. Rose and Charlotte dressed the part for this year’s circus theme. Rose was a cheetah and Charlotte was an animal trainer.
“It’s fabulous and it’s a great way to see twins and multiples. People are so friendly you want to go back,” said Rose. The Youngstown area sisters posed for pictures with many different sets of twins, all dressed appropriately for the event. “It’s a happy time, it’s a fun time,” said Rose.
The "look alike" twins -- as the identical, similarly dressed twins are referred to -- had their photo from last year's event featured in this year's program. Each year, a picture of all the twins present is taken from a camera atop a mechanical ladder.
