Do you love a good snack pack?

Well, you'll be in luck during the Festival of Fisher's Ghost this year, with the world's largest snack pack set to draw a crowd.

The folks from King Kebab House on Queen Street, Campbelltown will attempt to secure a Guinness World Record for the world's largest halal snack pack on Saturday, November 9.

King Kebab owner Mevlana Cifci said he wanted to make the attempt a huge community effort.

"I love Campbelltown, I worked in many places and Campbelltown is the best, so I want to do this to help this place and bring more people here," he said.

"Other businesses around want to help out as well, with chips and pizza boxes.

"We'll have 40 people, inside and outside, to make this snack pack."

King Kebab - which claims to be home to Australia's tastiest halal snack pack - has partnered with Campbelltown Council to get the world record under way. All money raised during the attempt will be donated to Campbelltown Hospital.

Mr Cifci said he came up with the idea three years ago and had been working towards it ever since.

"We need only five metres to make the record, but we want to go much bigger than that," he said.

"I want no one else to get it - we want the record to stand forever."

Mr Cifci said the snack pack would be made as simply as possible, and compiled in a series of pizza boxes all laid out together.

He is also happy to have community members helping out on the day.

Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said he was looking forward to the Guinness World Record attempt.

"I can't wait to see our community come down and help set a Guinness World Record for the largest halal snack pack while raising money for a good local cause like Campbelltown Hospital," he said.

"We are proud to support this challenge as part of our flagship Festival of Fisher's Ghost event."

The attempt will take place between 2pm and 5pm at King Kebab, following the street fair.
