LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAS11) -- The Kroger on Shelbyville Road is putting the final touches on the Garland of Lilies.

It's the 23rd year the store has crafted the garland that's worn by the filly who wins the Kentucky Oaks.

Upon completion, about 160 hand sewn lilies will be sewn together, weighing about 20 pounds.

The garland will be on display at the Middletown Kroger from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday.

That Kroger is also making the Garland of Roses for the Kentucky Derby.
