Concerned citizens participate in Hands Across the Sand in June 2010 on Marco Island's South Beach. The event took place in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and 30 other countries.

Thousands plan to join hands Saturday along Florida beaches for the second annual "Hands Across the Sand" event, meant to demonstrate opposition to expanded coastal and offshore drilling as well as support for clean-energy choices.

Locally, a group is meeting at Lowdermilk Park beach at noon. Attendees will join hands for 15 minutes while standing along the Gulf.
