    Billed as the only triplet convention in the world, the three-day (naturally) event features a series of educational, support and social activities for multiples and their families, and a family day Saturday at Valley Forge National Park.

    More than 65 families are expected to attend, and according to convention stat from the CDC, almost 6,000 sets of triplets were born in 2007 (compared with 1,337 in 1980).x
