OAKLAND, Md. (AP) — Opponents of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas are hoping to send a message to Gov. Larry Hogan at a parade in western Maryland.

Thomas Meyer of Food and Water Watch says in a statement that anti-fracking activists will take positions Saturday along the Autumn Glory Parade route in Oakland. Hogan is grand marshal of the parade.

Meyer says demonstrators will peacefully and respectfully convey their message that they oppose the state's plan to allow fracking in the state as soon as October 2017. The Department of the Environment issued a set of proposed regulations last month.

Hogan is wrapping up a three-day swing through western Maryland to promote his administration's projects and campaign for fellow Republicans.
