250,000 SEE REDWOOD PARADE: Toe-hold on independence
One unusual booth had a line going out the door. "Once Upon A Toe," the banner read.
Inside, a worker stripped damp shoes off women's feet, fitting their toes with tiny silver and gold rings. David Macfadden, who has a bull-ring piercing his nose, was waiting for his girlfriend to get a toe-ring. He said his presence was like a dare to go one step further.
Two girls in line, ages 13 and 16, said the toe-rings were "like a surprise" for their parents. A sort of Independence Day surprise."
