Muskego Way neighborhood holds block party at Reiske Park

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The weather was perfect for a block party on Milwaukee's south side Friday night. 

More than 250 residents of the Muskego Way neighborhood gathered for a few hours of family fun at Reiske Park. 

The event is meant to celebrate the neighborhood and residents, while also installing new neighborhood signs on lamp posts throughout the neighborhood.

"This is really an opportunity to bring all the residents into the heart of Muskego Way," said organizer Jacob Stanley Yarbrough. "Most residents don't really cross the busy intersections, so Mitchell or Muskego, but they all share very similar concerns. We really wanted to take some time to celebrate the neighborhood itself, to have all the residents connect with each other who share concerns."

Besides the games for kids, there were tables set up for people who may not be aware of some of the resources available to them.
