OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ People in downtown Oklahoma City this weekend aren't seeing double.

It's probably just one of the 80 sets of twins expected in the city for this weekend's International Twins Association convention.

The group holds a convention in a different city every year.

Michigan twins Janet Spinner and Joyce Hodess have been attending the conventions for 60 years. Spinner says the event was started by an Indiana preacher in 1930, but wasn't held during Word War Two.

The 76-year-old twins attended the first postwar convention in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1946, when they were 16 years old.
