Late last month Ford announced intentions to transform Michigan Central Station into a spooky spectacular for surrounding residents to enjoy an evening of hair raising fun!

On Wednesday, October 31st, the iconic landmark, which has doubled as eerie backdrop for major Hollywood blockbusters, will become destination central for Ford’s community Halloween party.
