A lavalier mic is absolutely the wrong mic for the situation you’ve described. It will mostly pick up your voice, and will most likely lose your interviewee’s in the crowd noise.

A few years ago I picked up a Sennheiser MD46:

This thing is *highly directional* and does a remarkable job of picking up only what it is aimed at. It falls into the category of being a reporter’s mic, and is designed for the exact situation you’ve described.
