OCEAN CITY, Md.- Things are back to normal after a suspicious package was found Friday afternoon on the Ocean City Boardwalk near where the annual Springfest event is being held.

Ocean City police said that at around 1:45 p.m. some festival goers alerted officials of an abandoned bag underneath a bench by a dumpster on the boardwalk. Several businesses in the vicinity were closed for about an hour as police taped off the scene and cleared the area. Then a bomb squad came in and checked out the suspicious package, which ended up being someone's personal belongings.

The area was reopened and activities got back to normal.
