Our pick of what to do in Canberra this weekend.
Have the time of your life at Limelight's screening of 1987 classic Dirty Dancing. Enjoy pizza and drink deals, and turn the screening into an interactive extravaganza with a cheeky song and dance. Limelight Cinemas, Tuggeranong. Friday 7-10pm. Book tickets at limelightcinemas.com.au. $15.
Transform your plain whites into kaleidoscopes of colour at Rainbowtopia's Tie-Dye stall at the Gininderra Markets.

Sunday 10.30am-1.30pm. $15 per adult clothing, $10 per kids clothing.
Join The Bachelor host and the nation's "resident romance expert" Osher Günsberg for the Summer Lovin’ party at the National Gallery. Loved-up couples, happy (and not-so-happy) singles and groups are invited to the gallery's Australia Garden for entertainment, love advice and a picnic of brownies, fresh bread rolls, roast chicken and potato salad. Up for grabs is a date inside the new Love & Desire: Pre-Raphaelite Masterpieces exhibition. National Gallery of Australia, Parkes. Saturday 6pm. Book tickets at tickets.nga.gov.au. $55-$75.
