Stallone greeted cheering fans, and Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney also made an appearance.

There was also a dedication for a plaque Stallone said was made for the statue 12 years ago but had been misplaced.

“Well, it was found and I want to thank the Mayor Jim Kenney and his staff, The Philadelphia Police Department, and of course the loyal fans that braved the cold. Keep punching, Philly,” posted Stallone on Instagram.

Stallone is reprising his role as famed fictional boxer, Rocky Balboa.

“Creed II” is scheduled to be released in November.
