Take it all in, today’s events are almost too good to be true.

For free health evaluations: The Garces Foundation will host a day of oral hygiene and health at Garces Dental Group in Old City for Philadelphia’s immigrants from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For your next furry find: Dogs and cats looking for their new home will be at Wild Birds Unlimited from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Hockession, DE. This pet adoption event will feature same-day cat adoptions for eligible adopters.

For fitness lovers: Joe Hand Boxing Gym in Spring Garden will host their third Community Fitness Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of the community ages eight and up will learn about boxing and a selection of other exercises from the gym’s trainers. A-list guests are slated to join as well, like Darius Morris, NBA player for the Lakers, Clippers, 76ers and Grizzlies and Raheem Brock, Super Bowl champ with the Indianapolis Colts and Temple graduate. Wear comfortable clothes!

For jewelry shopping: The Bernie Robbins flagship jewelry store in Somers Point, NJ urges shoppers to see the newest additions to their lineup, including goods from brands Armenta and Tudor. Representatives from Tudor, a watch brand, will be in-store to discuss their pieces from noon until 7 p.m.

For a pickling competition: Watch as six teams race to pick the most dill pickles from a pool faster than the others. The relay takes place at 1 p.m. behind the Dennis Courtyard at Bally’s on the Atlantic City boardwalk.
