For one day, nobody called Lily ugly. It would be inappropriate, after all, to say a blushing bride is anything but beautiful - even if she's a heavy breather and her bottom teeth jut out way beyond her face. "All brides are beautiful," said Linda King of Guilford, who dressed up her bulldog in lace, pearls and a blue garter yesterday for the second annual Howl-A-Ween Fancy Dress Dog Competition. Lily and 49 other pups strutted around the courtyard at the American Can Co. and panted at the camera during the Canton Community Association's annual event, which raised more than $300 for the city's first dog park, scheduled to open at Toone and Clinton streets in the spring.

Halloween goes to the movies this weekend. At the Charles, David Lynch's cult classic "Eraserhead" plays at 11: 15 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday. This black-and-white flick starring the late Jack Nance is a headache-inducing collage of industrial wastelands and disgusting images. I love it.At Bengie's Drive-In Theatre, families can enjoy horror films rated G or PG: Roger Corman's "Masque of the Red Death" (1964), "Dracula Has Risen From the Grave" (1968) and "Dracula A.D. 1972," all preceded by George Pal's collection of animated shorts, "The Puppetoon Movie."

Now it's an intergenerational event with entire families dressing in coordinated costumes.Celebrating Halloween has changed too.

The fun begins at 8 p.m. Friday with "Scary Movie Night."

When it comes to Halloween, Pasadena has embraced the orange plastic leaf bag pumpkin, scream mat, spider-webbed version of this formerly low-keyed candy event.Gone is the one-shot, boxed costume with mask, or raiding the rag bag (or your parents' closet) for a one-of-a-kind creation.Today's well-dressed trick or treater wouldn't step foot out of the house without the total look. Of course, the cost of that look will have to be borne by generations to come, like the national debt. But, hey, what's money for anyway?
