Winterlights doesn’t open until Nov. 25 at Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens in North Andover and two other Massachusetts properties operated by The Trustees of Reservations, but tickets are more than 70 percent sold.

The immersive holiday light displays at the Stevens-Coolidge House, the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in Canton and Naumkeag in Stockbridge are in their fifth year. The program runs Wednesdays through Sundays from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. between Nov. 25 and Jan. 7. Tickets range from $10 to $27 for nonmembers and need to be purchased online.

“Watching our beautiful public gardens transform into a winter wonderland where special memories with family and friends are made has become an annual tradition of wonder and delight,” Trustees Interim Chief Executive Nicie Panetta said in a news release. “Our properties are community hubs all year long and at The Trustees we take pride in adapting our unique places to allow more people to gather and celebrate in nature.”

The Trustees recently finished interior and exterior renovations at the Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens. The estate belonged to Helen Stevens Coolidge and her husband, John Gardner Coolidge—a diplomat descended from Thomas Jefferson and a nephew to Isabella Stewart Gardner.
