List of other memorable TC area demos
1. Birdhouse in 1996 or so at what might have been the Stearns County fairgrounds. Featured a young Andrew Reynolds and Tony Hawk doing McTwists on a 8 or 9-foot quarterpipe.
2. Flip in the middle-aughts at the 3rd Lair. There were fears the ramps would collapse because of the 700-800 people who showed up. The crush of humanity fogged up the park.
3. Girl and Chocolate in 1998 at the Lair. Mike York tried a handful of noseslides and then focused his board and left. Everything else about it was quite lit.
That's pretty much it beyond the Hot Chocolate Tour demo, which seemed redundant to list.
Here's other stuff. The DLX contingent rolled through town the past couple weeks.

There's another demo:
