Student organizations compete, first to have their sketch proposals weeded out to determine the ones that will actually be staged, and then against one another during the production section of the Tigerama rally. Each year has theme - in 1999 it was about the upcoming millenium change, for example. A guest host emcee is standard. Tiger Band, the cheerleaders, and Company C-4 of the Pershing Rifles are also featured.
Originally held in Death Valley, the gathering has been moved to Littlejohn Coliseum in recent years, with the fireworks show moving from just outside the stadium near the ticket office to the lowlands near the East Bank of Lake Hartwell.
Station staffers at WSBF are instrumental in producing the skits, as the soundtrack to be played over the public address system is recorded beforehand at the station studios, with the players miming their lines during the Friday evening presentation.
