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.
News On 6 Anchor Lori Fullbright was there Saturday, meeting with shoppers and offering crime prevention tips.
Together the banks and the mall say they're committed to helping the area heal.
