Ata mārie kiritata,

The city's urban dwellers are about to meet Manawatū's rural dags for the annual Rural Games in Palmerston North's square.

More than 25,000 people are expected to come to town over two days, with national and international audiences through media, social media and television coverage.

Five per cent of the $1 million event is supported the city council, but the games trust's chairman Margaret Kouvelis wants a greater contribution to the games.

Should council contribute more?
