Apparently Mayor Sam Katz is a big fan of Happy Days. He presented Henry Winkler aka The Fonz with the Key to the City over the weekend at the World of Wheels Car Show.

On a serious note, Mayor Katz noted that “We don’t just give it to any actor that becomes very successful. this is because in a whole different world he’s made such a wonderful contribution,”. He joins Milt Stegall, Sir Bob Geldof, and Jon Montgomery as owners of the Key to the City.

What exactly can someone do with a Key to the City? Nothing really… it simply lets the receiver know that our door is always open and they are welcomed everywhere in the city any time. Henry Winkler is now officially a Winnipeger..
