The beloved 2WG sign will light up Wagga's skies once more after being switched on again this evening.
The sign was turned on just after 8.30pm for the first time in more than 30 years, to cheers from the crowd of people gathered on the Baylis Street bridge.
A dedicated team of tradies, retirees and volunteers donated their time over the past six months to restore the iconic sign to its former glory.
Radio station 2WG opened on Baylis Street in 1932 and its flashing neon sign soon became a part of Wagga's history.
The sign had not been switched on for many years and was left to rust on top of the building until it was restored this year with the help of a $4,000 grant from Wagga City Council.
Wagga's Janet Bowen spearheaded the project and said many locals had nostalgic memories associated with the old 2WG sign.
Ms Bowen was on Baylis Street on December 3 to watch the sign be turned on.
"We're delighted to see it all shining and bright. It's absolutely marvellous to see it alight again after all these years," she said.
"It's a really important icon of Wagga, I think. And we were very lucky to get a heritage grant under Wagga Council which helped with the restoration of it."
