LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)-  Lilies are the official flowers for Oaks, and the garland is almost ready to make its way to the track.

The garland is being made at a new Kroger location this year.

Gene Kang is live at the Kroger on Hubbards Lane.

On Friday, at the Kroger on Hubbards Lane, floral designers will make the Garland of Roses that the Derby winner will get.
 
Work will go from 4 to 11 p.m., and the completed garland will be on display until 8:30 a.m. on Saturday.  It will then be taken to Churchill Downs with a police escort.
