Trunk-or-Treat: Ford Gets Freaky All in the Name of Halloween Fun
Michigan Central Station–and a few Ford trucks–get into the holiday spirit in Detroit with a ‘trunk-or-treat’ parking lot.
On oct. 31, Ford and its community partners hosted a family friendly Halloween event at Michigan Central Station, Detroit’s most iconic landmark, for 800 neighborhood residents and Ford employees. The interior of the long-vacant train station was brought back to life with spooky kids’ activities, trick-or-treating stations, live music, decorations, and more.
While outside the building, 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.
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.
