Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter’s health has been rapidly declining, as confirmed by their family. However, their attendance at a significant local event on a beautiful day shows their resilience and determination. The renowned residents of Plains, Georgia, made a slow procession through the town’s annual Peanut Festival in an SUV last Saturday, according to NBC News. The Carters’ presence in the vehicle was verified by the Carter Center online, as reported by the Hill, with a video reposted here. “Beautiful day for President & Mrs. Carter to enjoy a ride through the Plains Peanut Festival!” exclaimed the center’s post. “And just a week before he turns 99.”
As the Carters passed by, festivalgoers lined the street to catch a glimpse of them. The video capturing the moment was recorded by Erikka Bettis Williams, who revealed to CNN that there was no prior indication of the Carters’ attendance. The couple has been staying home since the former president entered hospice care earlier this year, as confirmed by their grandson. Jimmy Carter will be 99 years old on October 1st, while Rosalynn Carter is 96. “Total surprise! The crowd was sort of slow to react at first because they didn’t realize they were there,” Williams shared. “It was such a great surprise, and yes, we sang ‘Happy Birthday’!” (Read more Jimmy Carter stories.)
