The public will finally get to see Lucy the Elephant's completed renovation - an event 15 months in the making.

MARGATE, New Jersey (WPVI) -- It's time to talk about the elephant in the room - or more specifically, the one at the Jersey Shore.

The public will finally get to see Lucy the Elephant's completed renovation Wednesday evening - an event 15 months in the making.

The grand unveiling begins at 5:30 p.m. on Lucy Plaza in Margate.

The original restoration was supposed to take just eight months.

There were some setbacks, including a water test that revealed more work needed to be done to seal Lucy's windows.

The entire project cost $2.4 million.

Lucy is a national historic landmark and is billed as America's oldest roadside attraction.

Margate musician Dan Walsh will sing his very own "Lucy the Elephant" song at the ceremony while Lucy is showered in a spectacular display of light.
