With one more day until the Fourth, it’s okay if you start the weekend early.

For a nostalgic exhibit: Model trains from the 1950s and 1960s will be up and running at the South Jersey Museum of American History in Glassboro, NJ. Today’s the first day of the exhibit and the trains will chug until the 27th. The museum is open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today.

For patriotic shopping: The stores in Downtown Haddonfield, NJ will have their patriotic-colored items available for browsers during the South Jersey town’s First Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

For those with a green thumb: Fresh tomatoes and summertime go together like peanut butter and jelly. Learn techniques to make sure you’re yielding the juiciest produce at this 5:30 p.m. class W.B. Saul High School in Roxborough.

For family recreation: Bring the whole family to the Willingboro Public Library at 6 p.m. tonight for an evening of friendly competition. The Willingboro, NJ library’s family game night kicks off at 6 p.m.

For a revolutionary tasting: We all learned about the American Revolution in school, but what they didn’t teach you about were the wines the Founding Fathers drank in the late 1770s. That’s where this cruise comes in. Departing from the Independence Seaport Museum at Penn’s Landing, cruisers will sip wines from the Revolution from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
