Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter drive through Plains Peanut Festival
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Just a week before former President Jimmy Carter turns 99, he and his longtime wife, Rosalynn Carter, got to drive through the Plains Peanut Festival.
“We’re betting peanut butter ice cream is on the menu for lunch!” the Carter Center said on X, formerly Twitter.
The Carters have visited the Plains Peanut Festival before, which celebrates the presidential couple and the region’s cash crop. Jimmy’s parents owned a peanut farm outside Plains, and the peanut would become part of his political branding.

Josh Carter, one of the Carters’ grandsons, told PEOPLE in August that his grandparents live a “quiet and calm” life and are often visited by family.
“They are still holding hands,” he said. “It’s just amazing.”
