The first 100 in line will be rewarded on Thursday morning, May 22 when the restaurant opens. One gentleman from St Petersburg, Florida has participated in over 100 campouts.
Many in line are armed with tents, sleeping bags, games and other comforts to pass the 24-hours away. Each person in line will be fed and entertained by the Chick-fil-A staff during their time in the parking lot.
Tonight there will be live music to give campers the opportunity to dust off their dance shoes. It's just one of many activities planned throughout the 24-hour event.
For those who don't make the cut off for a year of Chick-Fil-A will have a chance to earn a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A sandwich by donating at least two school supplies. Those supplies will be used for students in Coffee County.
The first 100 in line will be awarded Thursday morning around 6am with the Chick-fil-A Cow leading the campers across the red carpet in a conga line. Restaurant team members will celebrate the milestone by banging on pots and pans, cheering and ringing cow bells.
