Bronze Fonz hits Milwaukee this summer
This project has been in the works since last fall, when a Milwaukee tourism group announced its plan to raise funds for the statue. The dedication ceremony is invitation-only, but the public is welcome to attend a free frozen custard social following the dedication. Later that day, the Happy Days cast will throw out the first ball at a Brewers game and Anson Williams, better known as Potsie, will sing the National Anthem.
As a Milwaukee resident, I'm not sure how I feel about the statue. There's absolutely no chance that the statue will be visually appealing. On the other hand, some crazy fans will probably come out of the woodwork for the festivities, so there's a definite potential for mocking there.
Would you get your photo taken with the Bronze Fonz? Do you think the statue will really bring tourists to Milwaukee?
