Detroit’s Michigan Central Station Haunted for Halloween

AutoInformed.com on Detroit's Michigan Central Station - Halloween 2018

Outside, a row of Ford vehicles formed a special trunk-or-treat parking lot that was open to the public. A graveyard in the front lawn and a light show on the exterior of the station added to the festive atmosphere.

Ford and its community partners today hosted a Halloween event at Michigan Central Station,  one of Detroit’s most neglected landmarks, for 800 neighborhood residents and Ford employees. From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., the interior of the long-vacant train station had spooky kids’ activities, trick-or-treating stations, live music, and decorations.

The Halloween celebration brings Ford together with the local community following its purchase of the train station in June. Ford plans to restore Michigan Central Station to its original grandeur and make it the centerpiece of a new 1.2 million-square-foot innovation hub in Corktown.
