Unofficially, Sue & Bill Varnas, and their rescue terrier, Scout, were the first fans to stake out a spot at The Morristown Jazz & Blues Festival, which runs from noon to 10 pm today, Aug. 17, 2013.
The Morris Township residents arrived at the historic Morristown Green a couple of hours early thanks to a slight mix-up. They were rewarded with the primo location for the daylong event.
However, plenty of choice vantage points still are available, so bring a lawn chair or beach blanket.
Here is the lineup:
