HOUSTON - Blocks of ice were turned into works of art Saturday at Discovery Green.

Artists used chainsaws, chisels and blowtorches to make the pieces. It was all part of the fifth annual Magnificent 7 Ice Carving Competition.

The ice is made of recycled rainwater and will be used to water area parks when it eventually melts.
