LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Churchill Downs is not the only place benefiting from the Kentucky Derby. Money is being made and spent outside the track as well.

Ready or not, Derby is almost here. And if you go out, you're going to have to fight through the crowds.

From the bows, feathers, zebra stripes, whatever you like, Derby fashion is back again this year, and in all kinds of colors. On Tuesday afternoon, some shoppers were out during their lunch breaks. Others decided to play hookey.

Shoppers, stylists, hats, feathers, dresses: these are clear signs that Derby is just around the corner.

Take a look at what some of the shoppers and store owners had to say!
