About 6:30 a.m. this morning, participants walked the "red carpet" as the first to enter the new restaurant on its opening day.

Participants for the Chick-fil-A "First 100" have registered and are getting settled into their tents this morning.
So far there are 42 people camping out for 24 hours to win free Chick-fil-A for a year. A company spokeswoman said they will continue to allow people to register and camp out throughout the day until they reach 100.
