TWINSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – Twin brothers from Poland took home a prize from the Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio over the weekend.

8-year-old Ben and Chris Kaufmann won the gold medal for most look-alike twins in their age category for the second year in a row. Their proud sister Mazie stands with them in the photo.

More than 2,000 twins and multiples are converging on Twinsburg near Cleveland this weekend for the fest.

The annual event, which began in 1976, draws siblings from around the nation and world.

The festival runs through Sunday and is open to all multiples, twins, triplets, quads, identical or fraternal and their families.

There’s also a golf outing, parade and of course a look-alike contest.
