MILWAUKEE, June 16 (UPI) -- Most of the stars from the classic sit-com "Happy Days" reportedly plan to attend the dedication of a bronze Fonzie statue in downtown Milwaukee.

Expected to take part in the invitation-only dedication ceremony Aug. 19, as well as a public celebration afterwards at Pere Marquette Park, are Henry Winkler who played Fonzie on the Milwaukee-set show, Marion Ross who played Mrs. Cunningham, Tom Bosley who played Mr. Cunningham, Erin Moran who played Joanie Cunningham, Don Most who played Ralph Malph and Anson Williams who played Potsie.

OnMilwaukee.com said Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, the stars of "Laverne and Shirley," a "Happy Days spin-off," are also expected to attend, along with the show's creator, director/producer Garry Marshall.

The site for the statue was moved from a previously announced location to RiverWalk at the request of the Milwaukee RiverWalk District, a major funder of the project, the Web site said.

"The district felt and we agreed that this new site offers easier access, more visibility and a considerably bigger footprint for people to pose with the statue," said David Fantle, vice president of public relations for VISIT Milwaukee.
