This small group quickly expanded to involve over (50) volunteers and a successful parade was held on December 4, 2010. The community greatly enjoyed the return of this Christmas tradition in Hampton. Since 2010, Experience Hampton, Inc. has now developed into an organization that is a state approved 501(c) 4, a formal board of directors made up of strictly volunteers, an approved set of by-laws and a membership made up of Hampton business owners and residents.
The mission of Experience Hampton Inc. is to organize, promote and manage events and projects in Hampton and the general vicinity that improve and benefit the community. As of 2014, EHI has also begun the facilitation of small economic development project. In keeping with that mission EHI has sponsored the Flags and Flowers program, distributing American flags at the Memorial Day parade and organizing flower barrels along Route 1 for the last (5) summers.
