The Sun Court Coronation has been a part of the Sun Bowl since 1936.
This year, the Sun Bowl Association announced the 2022-2023 Sun Court, including a new sun queen, lady-in-waiting and eight princesses in August.

The women on the Sun Court serve as ambassadors for the city of El Paso and volunteer at various community events.
