Marion County: FUN FACT

In 2005, Marion County native Robert Tinnel published an autobiographical graphic novel called “Feast of the Seven Fishes,” a comical look at the Italian-American Christmas Eve celebration. A film version of the book was shot on location in Marion County and released in 2019. Tinnel worked with local organizers to create the annual Feast of the Seven Fishes Festival, a winter street festival that takes place every December in Fairmont, WV.
