The Miss Universe Panama 2022 coronation pageant took place on Friday, September 2 at the Vasco Núñez Convention Center. In it, the model and presenter Solaris Barba was crowned Miss Universe Panama 2022. The 23-year-old will represent the country in the international contest, which has finally been postponed to the first quarter of 2023.
In the event there were musical performances, a parade of fantasy costumes and typical dances, among which, a highlight was the Customs Folkloric Ballet of Panama. The objective of the show was the proclamation of Solaris Barba as Miss Universe Panama, after being selected in a casting held during the month of May. The gala, broadcast live by the Panamanian network RPC TV, was directed and presented by Andrea Batista, Jorge Herrera and Kiara Sang.
Thanks to the national director of Miss Universe Panama, Ricardo Canto, and the producer Rocco Productions, Fluge Audiovisuales Centroamérica was the official technology provider of the event. Thus it was in charge of supplying the sound, lighting and video equipment for the installed stage.
