The Family Carnival took the form of an NS Journey Exhibit to showcase the experience of the unit over the past two years while the NSMilestone Parade consisted of a traditional "ORD Parade" that also featured the Assumption of Command by the NS Key Appointment Holders, to emphasise the continuity of NS beyond the active cycle.

The NS Journey Exhibit was aseries of photo and video exhibits that depicted the achievements and experiences of the soldiers over the past two years. The servicemen brought their families and friends on their NS journey through a series of static andinteractive displays that incorporated two main themes, namely, "Becoming a Guardsmen" and "Becoming Operationally Ready". The first segment of "Becoming a Guardsmen" showcased their journey from BMT through the Guards Advanced Infantry Training (GAIT).  Besides the sights and sounds of the photosand videos, there were combat ration tasting, camouflage-painting stations, as well as weapons/combat equipment display. These stations gave opportunities to the servicemen to explain andre-live the challenges they first experienced when they entered National Service and the memories they had onto attaining their coveted Guards tab and Khaki beret.
