Located on the river boardwalk area, outside of the Rock Bottom Brewery, is a bronze statue dedicated to the enigmatic character of Arthur Fonzarelli (aka Fonzie, aka the Fonz).

Henry Winkler, the actor who played Fonzie, evidently called the $85,000 donation by a Milwaukee tourism group, "unbelievable."

"Happy Days" was set in the 50's era Milwaukee area. It contributed the indispensable phrase, "Keep it Fonzie," into popular language.
