This week's Top 9 Instagram photos capture events that took place around the Tri-State, from the 30th anniversary of Pete Rose landing his 4192 record breaking hit from the Cincinnati Reds, the LST-325 battleship that was temporarily docked at the public landing to the launch of our brand new 7:00 p.m. newscast. It's been a busy mid-September week!
Let's relive that magic moment . . . Thirty years ago yesterday the Hit King, Pete Rose, landed his 4192 record breaking hit. Today, @redsbaseball is celebrating at Great American Ballpark. We also have a great piece by John Erardi, a longtime sports columnist, who was there for the day on WCPO.com: http://bit.ly/1NjJO5E ^MEF
The LST 325, one of the last of its kind that was saved by a group of Navy veterans and history buffs and turned into a floating museum in 2001, will be open for public tours Sept. 12-16 on the shore of the Ohio River. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for youth ages 6-17. Couples can see the ship with two or more of their children for $20. We have more fascinating details about the history of the ship on WCPO.com: http://bit.ly/1QaJt4o Photo: @megan_fenno | WCPO

It's #hallabackthursday - a day to shine light on our beautiful @musichallcincy! Did you know? Music Hall was designed originally for unique and dual purposes - to house musical activities in a center area and industrial exhibitions in its side wings. It's played host to a wide number of activities, ranging from traditional symphony concerts and theatrical performances to the Democratic National Convention of 1880, and expositions, such as the Cincinnati Industrial Expositions, home and garden shows, automobile shows, basketball games, tennis matches, wrestling matches, and more!
