Each year on the Friday after Thanksgiving, the Martins Ferry Volunteer Fire Department hosts the Martins Ferry Christmas Parade. The MFVFD has been hosting this time-honored tradition for over 34 years. The parade features floats from area groups and businesses, marching bands, mascots, and a favorite of all the kids, fire trucks, and police cars from around the valley.

Unified began in Martins Ferry in 1902 and has provided professional community banking services to the people of Martins Ferry ever since. Unified’s vision is to provide better lives and futures for the people and communities they proudly serve.
After a one-year absence in 2020 due to COVID, the MFVFD Christmas Parade returned last year with great success. This year the Christmas Parade will begin at 6:30 pm. Floats will be lighted, and candy and goodies will abound.
