Hawke's Bay people turned out on Saturday to welcome home Caroline and Georgina Evers-Swindell.

The Olympic gold medallists were born and educated in Hastings.

A mid-morning parade was held in Napier for the twins and seven other Olympic team members, followed by another in Hastings.

Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule wants a park named in honour of the twins.
