The Peking Acrobats will perform their first-ever free show in Las Vegas when they appear downtown at the Fremont Street Experience for one night only.

It’s been 10 years since a Las Vegas audience has seen the Peking Acrobats juggle, contort, balance and amaze. Not since a 1996 performance at the MGM Grand, have Las Vegas visitors and locals had the chance to witness the feats of the world-renowned acrobats. The 2006 North American tour will bring the Peking Acrobats to town for a one-night-only special free performance at the Fremont Street Experience on the 1st Street Stage Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m.
