Free Shows in Las Vegas You Can Enjoy When You've Lost All Your Money

Free Shows in Las Vegas You Can Enjoy When You've Lost All Your Money

So you've lost all your money at the tables, and now you're looking for something to do. Never fear. Here are a bunch of free shows to check out in Las Vegas.

There have got to be a billion things to do in Las Vegas! How do you pick, and how do you find something on a tighter budget? The good news is that along with Vegas's other attractions they have a ton of free ones as well! Narrowing it down was tricky, but here are five fun and free things to do on your own or with friends in Las Vegas:

1. Big Elvis at Harrah’s Piano Bar

Named as one of Time Magazine's Top 10 Elvis Impersonators (2010)

Big Elvis is (you guessed it) an Elvis impersonator, one the most highly recommended in Vegas.

Now, maybe Elvis isn't your thing, or maybe you have seen one too many bad Elvis impersonators and feel that if you hear another bad rendition of Jailhouse Rock you might scream? Well, this guy has been doing it since high-school and comes with some big recommendations.

The man himself is the 2006 Best of Las Vegas award winner, Peter "Big Elvis" Vallee. He performs many Elvis tunes as well as some country classics, Louis Armstrong, and others, he even takes requests!

Big Elvis performs at Harrah's Piano Bar Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 2 PM, 3:30 PM, and 5 PM.

2. Fountains of Bellagio

Bellagio Hotel/Casino's Light, Fountain, and Music show.

Bellagio has a lot of fun attractions and activities, their casino (of course), a Cirque Du Soleil show, as well as many others.

However, for those of us looking for something a little less expensive, they have their famous light, fountain, and music show. You might have spied it in the remake of Ocean's 11?

Anyway, it has complex choreography, beautiful lights, as well as music varying from things like classic Broadway tunes to classic rock to simply classical, plus movie soundtracks, and pieces composed for things like the Olympics; a little something for any musical taste.

It's a great place to hang out with friends and drink a beer—just try not to get splashed.

Their Show Times are:
Monday - Friday: 3:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. show every 1/2 hour.
8:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. show every 15 minutes.
Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays: 12:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. show every 1/2 hour.
8:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. show every 15 minutes.

3. Fall of Atlantis at Caesars Forum Shops

Display featuring fire, water, and of course massive talking animatronics.

Who says malls have to be just stores and food courts? Why not add some giant talking animatronics to enhance the fun?

Seriously this show has nine foot tall talking animatronic statues, a 20 foot dragon, plus the fire and water effects. The costumes and props were created by people who worked on things like the Thor and Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
Apparently it can get a little hard to understand what they are saying sometimes, there tends to be a crowd (go figure, a 20 foot dragon attracts some attention) so try to get close (or read the plot ahead of time, whatever suits you.)

Operation times are:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM
Friday, Saturday: 11:00 AM to 12:00 AM
Sunday: 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM

4. Circus Circus

Various free human circus acts.

Don't have the money to go see Cirque Du Soleil? Well, never fear! Circus Circus has plenty of amazing free circus acts for you to enjoy! Trapeze artists, jugglers, aerial silk artists, acrobats, roller skaters, and more.
Who doesn't love watching people juggle with their feet, or leap about on silks and trapezes?
Performances start at 11 a.m. and go throughout the day.

5. Volcano in front of the Mirage

Yup. It's a Volcano. Welcome to Las Vegas.

It doesn't even really need an introduction. The Mirage has a volcano in front of it that's free for you to come and watch! It has fireballs, explosions, and a good dose of classic rock music.

Schedule:
Sunday - Thursday: 8 p.m. & 9 p.m.
Friday - Saturday: 8 p.m., 9 p.m. & 10 p.m.

Bonus Info

Because choosing just five was too hard!

CBS even has a place where you can watch and rate television pilots! So, if you are looking for a little bit more here are a couple websites to explore.

Go have the time of your life in Las Vegas!
