Michigan Central Station Is Lit Up With A Moving Light Show And It’s Bananas

Play episode

It seems that the folks putting on the Crain’s Homecoming event have pulled out all of the stops, including an crazy impressive light show using the windows of historic Michigan Central Station as their canvas.

A rainbow pattern, as well as words like “Detroit,” “Reinvent,” and “Reimagine” scrolled across the building.

If you don’t know about Crain’s Homecoming, it’s where Crain’s Detroit Business rolls out the red carpet (with help from sponsors and foundation dollars) to attract Detroit ex-pats to come back to Detroit and invest. Their kick-off dinner is tomorrow night.

There have been bits and pieces coming out on social media from this evening.

The Detroit Experience Factory shared this live video:
