The party is held every year by Craig Mammalton. He gives invitations to anyone that is well tanned, but those that are not have to wait outside. Everyone who wants to go inside has to be checked by Craig to see if they are tanned and approved for the party. It is supposed to be held yearly, but the party was never seen or heard of again.
SpongeBob and Patrick want to get into the party, but they are not tanned enough. As a result, Patrick buys a tanning machine and tans himself with the help of SpongeBob, and SpongeBob tans himself with the help of Patrick. However, Patrick leaves SpongeBob in the tanner for too long and SpongeBob becomes a very light yellow and cracked. To fix the problem, Patrick adds caramel sauce all over SpongeBob, giving him a tan look. Meanwhile, at the party, bright lights are beating down on the party-goers and SpongeBob's caramel shatters off of his body, revealing his extremely light and cracked skin. Craig reveals that SpongeBob was "sun bleached," the most extreme type of tan. To honor his bravery, as Craig says, he cranks up the lights and at the end of the party, everyone is in ashes from the extreme heat and brightness of the lights.
The door is made out of two huge stone figures, which have a shield in one hand. The statues are there as a decoration. Beside the door is a huge trash container, where all of the un-tanned have to wait. The wall seems to be made of wood.
