The event, which includes a balloon launch and ice cream social following the dedication, is set for 2 to 4 p.m.

Ava died April 14 shortly after being struck by a car driven by Anita Nalencz of Franklin. Ava's mother, Tanya Zimmerman, 29, suffered minor injuries.

The Milwaukee County district attorney's office has not yet decided whether criminal charges will be filed.

The accident occurred as Ava was walking with her mother and other family members across Broad St. near Northway. The statue will be at the same intersection.
