The Taitaja 2010 games that began today have crowded the area around Ouluhalli as well as some of the streets of Oulu. In only a few hours 6000 spectators visited the competition. The parking area of Ouluhalli is reserved for the competition.

Visitors are advised to leave their cars home and arrive at the arena by public transport or by walking. The distance from the centre of Oulu to the Ouluhalli arena is about one kilometer. The walking route is marked from the Oulu City Hall all the way to the arena.

Tehtaankatu, Ratakatu and Teuvo Pakkala katu are constantly filled with hundreds of buses transporting students. Visitors are advised to avoid the area.
