The giant mirror ball on Blackpool's South Shore is being put back after having its 46,000 mirrors replaced.
The 4.5-tonne ball is being returned opposite the Solaris centre after being removed by the council in July for refurbishment by art students.
The 10-year-old ball, which is in six sections, will take about a week to re-install, Blackpool Council said.
It will be completed in time for the illumination switch-on on 29 August.
A council spokesman said: "After 10 years it had started to look a bit less glitzy and needed an overhaul.
"It's an iconic structure on Blackpool's seafront and is a working revolving mirror ball that we believe to be the biggest in the UK.
"We're pretty confident it should be up and glittering in time for illumination switch-on next week"
