2009 Twins Days Double Take Parade

Twinsburg, Ohio has been celebrating twins for 33 years. The Wilcox twins founded the city back in 18 whatever. The city is about five miles from here, and the weather was perfect for the annual Twins Days Double Take parade. The theme was the 1950's and we saw a lot of darling costumes. Some busy seamstresses whipped up the most adorable poodle skirts. We stopped counting after awhile, we saw so many.


The parade royalty.


1950's television costumes - cute!





With a little help from their mom, these gals were able to ride their scooters along the parade route.






Twins of all ages took part.





Even a set of triplets! Don't you love their vehicle?






Most everyone seemed to be having a good time.







I wish you could see this better. It was a library float, and behind the truck were about ten book carts being pushed by willing personel.







Do you have the Geek Squad where you live? They fix computers and get to drive the cutest little cars!










Who knew the Twinsburg Police Department had a corvette??









Twin lions brought by the Lions Club. One of the twins is nearly out of sight on the far left.











What a cool looking vehicle. It ran on two car batteries and was soundless. I've never seen such a thing before.














Somebody got tired of her shoes.











We even saw a quilt in the parade. Nice!

Diana, I have heard of this event, but I have never been to it. Looks like it was a lot of fun! I am all too familiar with those book carts pushed by the people behind the library float. I push one of those around every time I'm working. :D

I thought of you, Daisy, when I saw that float. The gals with the book carts even had a little routine where they twirled them in circles every once in a while. :>}
