For the 49th year, sets of twins and multiples from around Illinois will gather together to celebrate their relationships.
This year, the Illinois State Twins Convention will be held in Rockford on Sunday, April 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. While attendees are promoting the spiritual, intellectual, and social welfare of twins and multiples, they will also spend the weekend visiting local sites and attractions like Anderson Japanese Gardens, Lockwood Park, Burpee Museum, and a paranormal tour at Tinker Swiss Cottage.
Sunday's event includes a social hour, lunch, business meeting, and silent auction. There will also be a contest for the most alike and unalike twins.
The convention is expected to bring about 250 people to Rockford and have an estimated economic impact of $26,200.
