Grace and Sophia Pohorence chosen to be the Twins Days Festival princesses for 2014!

Sophia and Grace have been attending the Twins Days Festival since they were born and enjoy taking part in the Double Take parade and talent show. They do almost everything together from 4-H, Girl Scouts, FFA and band to theater and art classes. Grace and Sophia have even shared a role in a murder mystery play at the Mad Factory. They enjoy the outdoors, and several years ago at a survival camp they shared the experience of rock climbing, zip lining, white water rafting and rappeling.Grace and Sophia are proud to be 2014 Princesses and are honored to represent twins who may appear different, but share a special bond and unique relationship.
