SEEING DOUBLE: TAKE A SPIN WITH YOUR TWIN: A TWIN CONTEST: March 17th at 2 pm
To add even more fun to this event, the MATR is partnering with the Southern Women’s Show this year to put on a contest just for twins attending the event. Twins are invited to take the stage together for the audience to decide on the “twinning” pair based on audience applause. Get creative and show off your twin pride! Winners will take home a prize. Make sure to sign up at the MATR’s booth at the Southern Women’s Show by 1:30 pm Saturday March 17th to take part. The contest will be held on Saturday at 2 pm (contestants should arrive at the stage at 1:45 pm). This is a contest for ALL twins, triplets, ets) – fraternal and identical are needed!
Even if you can’t make it to the Twin Contest itself, come visit folks from the MATR at our booth. We will be there all weekend!
