PLAINS, GA (WALB) -

Plains hosted its 21st Annual Peanut Festival Saturday, and many traveled from near and far to attend.

It all kicked off with a 5K Saturday morning.

Visitors even got to meet Former President Jimmy Carter in a book signing.

Residents said the all day event is one of the towns' claims to fame.

"Plains, Georgia is noted for two things: that's Jimmy Carter and Plains peanuts," said Bobby Salter, owner of Plain Peanuts. "There's no other small town you can go to that has an ex-president from it, that's friendly and all as Plains Georgia is."
