Cherry picking and the Blak Markets, here’s what’s happening across Australia this weekend

Well, if it's not the weekend rolling around once again. Lord knows we're grateful to see your face. But what to do? Here at RUSSH we've compiled a non-exhaustive list of things to do this weekend. For starters, cherry season has officially begun and so, naturally the place to be is Young - if that's your thing. Or you can catch the last rays of Sydney Film Festival for 2021. Otherwise, Inarma Women's Choir are giving a performance as part of Tarnanthi in South Australia.
