MUSKOGEE, OK -- Muskogee is kicking off the back to school shopping season with a block party. Three banks in the same block as the mall got together and decided to host a community event all about family fun.

"We have kids participating in everything. We have the inflatables. It's just been a wonderful day. And, I'm just thankful for the community coming out and supporting us," said Tobi Ledbetter, Arrowhead Mall.

Since the mall shooting in April people have been on edge.
