Michigan Central Depot is being turned into the setting for a family-friendly Halloween event for 800 residents in surrounding neighborhoods.
The automaker distributed the 800 tickets to the Wednesday party for residents of the Corktown and Hubbard-Richard neighborhoods. Some Ford employees affiliated with the redevelopment project at the long-vacant train station or the autonomous and electric vehicle teams already working in Corktown got tickets, too.
All tickets have already been given out, but the public can trick-or-treat outside the building on Wednesday evening.
Visitors without tickets will be able to visit a spooky graveyard in the front lawn, and watch a light show on the exterior of the station.
