CLEVELAND (AP) – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland has welcomed its 10 millionth visitor.

The Plain Dealer reports that the lucky patron was 27-year-old Ross Walker, who had taken an overnight bus from New York City and decided to stop at the museum Thursday morning before his visit to the University of Akron on Friday.

Walker was the 10 millionth person to visit since the museum opened on the Cleveland lakefront in September 1995. For being in the right place at the right time, he was feted with a colorful balloon storm, a big cake and music-related gifts worth around $4,000.

Almost 90 percent of Rock Hall visitors are from outside the Cleveland area, and 10 percent of those are international.
