Troy, NY, has an annual "Victorian Stroll" event that I plan to go to this year, and it runs until 5PM, which, given the time of year, will be dark by the time it wraps up. I am planning to wander around and take photos of people in their Victorian costumes, and just people and Troy in general (weather permitting, of course).

Since I will be moving around a fair bit, and there will be crowds, a tripod (or monopod) is not going to be an option. What tips do you have for shooting at night in this kind of setting?

You might find something like this is useful for the occasional shot.....
