Halloween Trips in Your Ford

For Halloween fans everywhere, September and October are exciting times. If you love your Ford as much as you love Halloween, here are some spooky-themed road trips you can take this Halloween season.

Gardner Village Witch Displays

This event might sound scary, but it’s actually a perfect event for the whole family! Witch-themed displays are set up over a course of 45 days, during which Gardner Village in West Jordan throws its annual Witch Fest. The whole town celebrates by donning street signs, businesses, and homes with witches. You can go for a day to enjoy the sights or participate in Wee Witches Weekend, which is perfect for the kids.

Oktoberfest

If you’re looking for a less scary and more adult-themed trip, then Oktoberfest is for you. Oktoberfest takes place over two days in Salt Lake City. There will be tons of food, drink, and lots of local musical acts. If you do want to bring the kids, though, you can, thanks to a kids’ area with a craft tent, ring toss, giant Jenga, and more.

Ogden Witchstock Festival

Another witch-themed event takes place in Ogden. The Witchstock Festival is held over the weekend before Halloween – October 28th. It’s not just witches here, either – the event kicks off at 6:00 p.m. with the Zombie Crawl and at 8:00 p.m., you can party with you beau or kids at the Monster Bash.

Ford’s 50th Anniversary Mustang

Ford has boasted a lot of iconic cars over the years, but none stand out as much as the Ford Mustang. The 50th Anniversary Mustang Cobra is more impressive, powerful, and iconic than ever.

Ford Performance tested out the Mustang Cobra on August 16th, and it’s proven to be the most advanced Mustang yet. When placed on the track, the racecar did a quarter-mile lap in just over eight seconds – a new record for the Mustang.

The Ford Performance Team wanted the 50th anniversary addition of the car to be special, which is why they crafted it to climb to over 150 miles per hour. It’s a nod to the Mustangs that beat out other competitors at the 1968 NHRA Winternationals.

It’s no wonder that this new Mustang model is so fast – under the hood, an advanced 5.2-liter V8 engine can be found. Paired with this engine is a 3.0-liter Whipple supercharger that helps improve the Mustang Cobra’s acceleration. The car’s ride height can be adjusted with two-way coil-over shocks.

This Mustang isn’t just for the race track. Customers can own the Mustang Cobra Jet in Race Red or Oxford White for an MSRP of around $130,000. To honor the iconic car’s anniversary, you can opt to get 50th Anniversary graphics and badging on the car. Learn more about this special edition Ford Mustang when you visit Westland Ford.
