Recognized by sight: From the information provided I would guess this is a Russula, even though it seems unlikely that someone would confuse a Russula with a Lactarius. I would chalk this one up to things at a fair getting mislabelled. Without seeing the underside, there is no chance of identifying to species.

Seriously doubt Lactarius rubrilacteus

The cap color and the striate margin are both outside of my understanding of this species. Normally it has a zonate cap, no striations and is red-orange possibly with green stains.
