Sheriff Irwin is retiring at the end of this year after 41 years in law enforcement. He said he's honored to be able to be a part of the parade.
"What a hoot to be the Grand Marshal of your hometown parade," said Sheriff Irwin. "That's very special."
The Sunfair Parade is the longest running Yakima parade. It will be held this year on September 20th at 10 a.m.
