Paradise shoppers hit two birds with one stone on Saturday, they got some great, local holiday shopping in and burned some calories at the ice rink.

The town hosted “Skate and Shop” at the Terry Ashe Recreation Center.

Marketing director, Gayle Jaarsma, said she hopes to connect shoppers with local vendors in the area.

Vendors sold homemade Christmas wreaths, candles, artwork and knitted crafts.

While the parents shopped, kids skated right outside.

Santa was also at the event, he collected toys in his sleigh for the toy drive.

"A lot of the vendors were just hoping for us, it's a little extra pocket change to see how talented some of the local vendors are,” Jaarsma said.

The craft shop closed at 6 p.m., but if you're still interested in skating it's not too late.

The seasonal rink is open until 10 p.m. and runs through January 15.

Tickets are $12.
