Las Vegas will descend on Los Angeles' Grove shopping plaza August 2. That day, from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm, the six permanent Cirque du Soleil shows from Vegas will give half-hour mini-performances, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times Culture Monster blog.

The admission to the six segments, as well as a circus play area for the kids, with face painters, jugglers and other activities, will be free. In addition visitors will have the opportunity to meet and chat with Cirque performers from shows like The Beatles Love, Mystère, and Criss Angel Believe.
