Neighbors craft ice carousel on Fish Lake in Maple Grove

The ice was about one foot thick.

Neighbors in Maple Grove decided to use their weekend to make a moving carousel out of ice on Saturday, Jan. 5. 

The carousel was powered by a trolling motor, which is a small electric boat motor.

The neighbors were inspired by YouTube videos of similar carousels. 

They used chainsaws to carve a large circle in the ice on Fish Lake. 

The temperature in Maple Grove was 19 degrees above average on Saturday.
