The San Diego County Fair sells fried Kool-Aid, syruped ice cream and frosted cinnamon rolls, but for one person Friday, it got even sweeter.

A fair patron, whose identity has not been released, paid $1 to purchase a winning Fantasy 5 ticket last week at a California Lottery booth on the Del Mar Fairgrounds, successfully matching all five numbers Friday night to score the $461,407 jackpot.

The winning numbers were 28, 24, 33, 39 and 18 from a 39-number pool.

The La Jolla Country Market, located at 1030 Torrey Pines Rd. in La Jolla, sold the ticket. The retailer is selling tickets at the San Diego County Fair through its July 4 end date.

Winners have 180 days to claim Lottery prizes. They are urged to sign the back of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place, and either contact Lottery officials or visit a local Lottery District Office as soon as possible.
