Do something for yourself today.

For a race: If the thought of the physical demands of a four-mile paddleboard race exhaust you, reconsider when discovering the proceeds of this contest go to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center, an organization that rehabs rescued marine mammals and sea turtles. Registration opens at 7 a.m. at Pleasantville, N.J.’s Comfort Inn and Suites and the first race of the day begins at 8 a.m.

For an opening exhibit: “The Diligent Needle,” an exhibit about a pastime from a bygone era showcasing the intricacies of needlework during the 17th through 19th centuries opens today at Delaware’s Winterthur Museum. Stop by between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

For another fruit festival: Yes, since tomatoes are technically a fruit, this Heirloom Tomato Festival at Terrain at Styer’s is a fruit festival. Try tomatoes and a variety of other edible options that include them as well as sit in on a few tomato-themed workshops in Glen Mills, Pa from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  

For a revisited revival: As if the Revival weren’t satisfactory enough, bass and drum players Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford back the revisited reincarnation of famed band Creedence Clearwater Revival. Creedence Clearwater Revisited takes the stage at Atlantic City’s Tropicana tonight at 8 p.m.

For mixed martial arts: The Cage Fury Fighting Championships take place tonight at King of Prussia’s Valley Forge Casino starting at 6 p.m.  The evening’s entertainment includes one main fight and seven undercards.
