Most parties ushering in 2011 happen Friday night, but some revelers are getting a jump on the celebrations this New Year's Eve, Eve.

The Chicago Park District hosted a family festival at the South Shore Cultural Center. The entertainment included dancing, games as well as arts and crafts.

The theme for a party at a retirement community in Naperville was 'It's a Wonderful Life.' Seniors at Monarch Landing danced the night away.

Union Station will likely be rockin' as the night goes on. The 17th annual 'Eve of the Eve Party' is a fundraiser for HighSight, a non-profit organization that provides educational help to inner-city Chicago youth.
